Commerce and Industry Minister Suresh Prabhu is expected to discuss trade, visa and investment issues with his US counterpart when he travels to Washington DC this week for an interaction with the Trump administration.
Officials in the know said an informal discussion on the World Trade Organisation (WTO) is also likely in which India will seek support for its agenda. The meeting will also discuss the US president’s daughter and White House advisor Ivanka Trump’s upcoming India visit.
Under the new US administration, the decade-old strategic and commercial dialogue has been split. It was decided a few months ago that India and the US will hold 2+2 (foreign minister- and defence minister-level) strategic dialogues.
