Ambassador Kirk Holds Bilateral with Indian Trade Minister Anand Sharma
Ambassador Kirk and Indian Trade Minister Anand Sharma met on Wednesday afternoon in Washington, DC, to discuss strengthening the bilateral U.S.-India trade relationship. The two first met earlier this month at the 33rd Cairns Group Ministerial meeting in Bali, Indonesia, where they began work on strategies to enhance trade and investment flows between the U.S. and India, and to facilitate greater commercial interaction between U.S. and Indian companies.
They committed to continuing high-level interactions on bilateral and multilateral issues – such as the Doha round of world trade talks – on multiple fronts, particularly the U.S.-India Trade Policy Forum. Both trade leaders will consult with public and private stakeholders on how to bring down trade barriers and open markets for exporters.
