US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has informed Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman that she will visit India in November to attend the US-India Economic and Financial Partnership ahead of the G20 meetings.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman met with her American counterpart, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, and announced that she would visit India in November.
“I am pleased to announce today that in November, ahead of the G20 meetings, I will travel to India for the first time as Treasury Secretary to attend the U.S.-India Economic and Financial Partnership, our ninth Partnership meeting,” Ms. Yellen said as the two delegations sat across the table at the U.S. Treasury on Tuesday evening.
Ms. Sitharaman confirmed that the dialogue would take place in New Delhi on November 11.
“The agenda is, of course, wide and varied,” she said of the meetings next month, highlighting a few key topics for discussion.
This included an assessment of the global economy, financial, regulatory, and technical collaboration, collaboration during India’s G20 presidency, how municipal bonds can help India, and attracting infrastructure investments.
Ms. Sitharaman was accompanied by six delegates for Tuesday’s talks, including India’s U.S. Ambassador Taranjit Singh Sandhu, who is in Washington D.C. for the World Bank and IMF Annual Meetings.
