New Delhi: India could take up the issue of visas for skilled workers when Prime Minister Narendra Modi meets US President Donald Trump next week, top trade ministry official said on Tuesday.
“H-1B visa issue will be one of the issues on the table during PM’s visit,” trade secretary Rita Teaotia said, referring to Trump’s order for a review of high-skilled visa programme that affects India’s $150 billion information technology sector.
Modi is due to meet Trump in Washington on 26 June, a meeting that is expected to lay the ground for a further expansion in ties, allaying some of the anxiety that had crept in about a drift in relations. Reuters
