U.S. Treasury Secretary Geithner Visits India This Month

U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner will travel to India June 27-28 for the third annual meeting of the U.S.-India Economic and Financial Partnership, the department said today.

Geithner will take part in a meeting with Indian Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee in Delhi on the first day of the visit, the Treasury said in a statement released in Washington. Geithner will be in Mumbai on June 28 to meet with Reserve Bank of India Governor Duvvuri Subbarao and Indian business leaders, the Treasury said.

“The U.S.-India Economic and Financial Partnership has served as a platform for greater cooperation on economic issues of importance to both nations,” the Treasury said in a statement. “Both countries recognize the importance of expanding bilateral economic engagement, noting the rapid growth of U.S.-India economic ties and the increasing range of global macroeconomic and financial issues on which the United States and India cooperate.”
