Question: Is the visit of five ministers of India to the US next week a follow up to the U.S. – India Strategic Dialogue?

Answer: Yes. The U.S. is hosting a high-level delegation of Indian ministers for a series of meetings at the end of this month. Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission, Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee and Commerce Minister Anand Sharma will be attending the U.S.-India CEO Forum on June 22. Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Ghulam Nabi Azad will be in Washington and Atlanta from June 23 to 25 for the U.S.-India Health Dialogue. Minister of State for Science and Technology, Prithviraj Chavan is scheduled to be in Washington on June 24 and 25 for the U.S.-India Science and Technology Forum.

The visit of the five ministers, following closely on the inaugural meeting of the U.S.-India Strategic Dialogue in Washington, underscores the energy and enthusiasm both sides attach to continuing our efforts to strengthen the U.S.-India partnership across a wide range of sectors.
