    Trade ties with India will grow: US legislators


    India and the US share common interests as both are the oldest and largest democracies of the world, Joyce Peppin, State Political Leader from Minnesota said.

    CHANDIGARH: Trade ties with India will continue to grow by leaps and bounds regardless of the leadership change in the US post elections, said a delegation of political leaders from America.

    Based on the solid foundation of bilateral relations laid by the US President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the two countries will work more and more in all areas of mutual interest, they said.

    Jeff Morris (Democrat), State Political Leader from Washington, and Joyce Peppin (Republican), State Political Leader from Minnesota, expressed these views during an interactive session on the 'US Elections: Process and Mechanics, and the Impact of New Administrative Policies of the US on the Indian Businesses' organised by CII here, said a release.

    India and the US share common interests as both are the oldest and largest democracies of the world, Peppin said.

    She said that in a globalised world, businesses cannot be stopped from expanding and branching out anywhere in the world.

    Morris in his address said, "The US would like to work in coalition with nations for common goals of peace and prosperity in the world. The US also believes in policy of free and fair trade as well as free movement of goods and services. In this regard, we vouch for open immigration policy as well as signing of special agreements with countries like India."

    Man Mohan Singh Kohli, Past Chairman, CII Chandigarh Council & Chief Executive Officer Aroma Group, said, "A thriving democracy is the dream of any nation. Thus, the two biggest democracies of the world need to share and learn from each other and the wide interest in the US presidential polls is also natural.

    The US-India strategic partnership goes beyond the merely transactional relationship and as the two largest democracies strive to achieve a balance between a sustainable and long-term strategic partnership and the comparatively short-term goals, there is clearly a need to communicate more with each other, he said.
