MEA discussions with US on talent

On Thursday, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar informed the Rajya Sabha that the country is trying to convince the US that tapping into the Indian talent is in mutual benefit of the two countries. “Issuing visas is the sovereign prerogative of other states. But at the same time there are very important economic and business and social interests…We are constantly in touch with the American system, the American government, members of the Congress to convince them that tapping into the Indian talent pool is for our mutual benefit,” the minister said. He also spoke about the fact that H-IB visa application has become “more complex” for employees worldwide.
