Washington: Describing India as an “incredibly dynamic country”, Peter Roskam, the newly-elected Republican co-chair of the Congressional caucus on India and Indian Americans said there are a broad spectrum of opportunities, including in the economic sector, for the two countries to collaborate. He was talking in a meeting with the Indian Ambassador Nirupama Rao on Capitol Hill. Dispatch News Desk reports on Saturday.
Roskam, said that he looked forward to using his next week visit with a Congressional delegation to learn more about India.
Indian Ammbasador Rao, in turn, gave an overview of the current economic outlook of India and agreed with Roskam about the bright prospects for business and economic cooperation between the two countries, an Indian Embassy press release said.
