Geithner, Mukherjee discuss G-20 agenda

New Delhi: US treasury secretary Timothy Geithner and finance minister Pranab Mukherjee on Monday discussed cooperation on a range of topics, including the Group of 20 agenda to rebalance global growth, the Treasury said in a statement.

The bilateral meeting, on the sidelines of US President Barack Obama’s visit to Delhi, also covered technical cooperation on capital markets, the development of infrastructure finance and combating the financing of terrorism, the Treasury said.

Geithner also invited Mukherjee to Washington in 2011 for a second round of annual US-India economic partnership talks. The first round was held in Delhi in April.
