Pompeo urges India to open up on trade
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has urged India to open up its economy and “diversify” its energy portfolio, adding that countries that provided American companies with access to their local markets have seen “real opportunity”. He was speaking at the India Ideas Summit of the US-India Business Council in Washington. He said that the US is open to discussions with India on trade issues.
“We remain open to dialogue, and hope that our friends in India will drop their trade barriers and trust in the competitiveness of their companies and businesses,” he said. Pompeo is scheduled to meet PM Shri Narendra Modi and his Indian counterpart Shri S Jaishankar during his visit.
