WASHINGTON, D.C. (Jan. 21, 2015) — U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker will join President Obama in India as part of the official U.S. delegation next week.
In addition to accompanying President Obama for his official meetings, Secretary Pritzker will meet with senior Indian officials to discuss the business and investment climate in India and focus on the opportunities for U.S.-India cooperation on a wide range of commercial and economic issues.
