Later, at a business roundtable organised by the US-India Business Council at Nasdaq, Goyal “spoke about India’s remarkable economic transformation and huge potential. Stronger India-US trade and surging crossflow of investments are adding new value and dynamism to our bilateral partnership.”
Earlier in the day, Goyal addressed a roundtable of stakeholders from industry, think tanks and academia at the Council on Foreign Relations.
The interaction focused on strengthening the India-US trade partnership and India’s role as a trusted investment destination. “Discussed wide-ranging issues including India’s G20 Presidency,” Goyal tweeted.
