Five US Governors to visit India over the next two months

  • 4th Sep 2019

The governors of five US states - New Jersey, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware and Indiana -- are scheduled to visit India over the next few months to enhance economic ties with the country.They will be leading high-powered trade delegations comprising top businesses from their respective states.The unprecedented move of five American governors visiting India in quick succession is a part of the efforts by the Trump administration and the Modi government to enhance the state-to-state relationship.The effort has been propelled by the current India's Ambassador to the US, Harsh Vardhan Shringla, who has travelled to 11 US states so far.Noting that states play an important role in both the countries, Shringla said this is a very important initiative.
"Increasingly, states have an important say in economic activities, investment, trade, and people-to-people contact," Shringla told PTI in an interview.
"I'm happy to say that in the next two months, we will have five governors of US States visiting India," he said, days before New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy leaves on his maiden trip to India with a high-powered trade delegation.
In fact, he is the first governor of New Jersey -- a state which has a sizeable population of Indian Americans -- to visit India. Early this Summer, Murphy had hosted Shringla over a dinner.
Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson is scheduled to visit India from September 29 to October 6. This will also be the first ever India visit by a Arkansas Governor. Hutchinson had a working lunch with Shringla early this summer.
