NEW DELHI: A five-member US Congressional delegation is heading to India for a week-long visit, during which they will try to explore opportunities in increasing business ties, as well as to give a fillip to bilateral ties.

The delegation will be led by US Senator Mark R Warner, co-chair of the Senate’s India caucus. They will be visiting Delhi, Jaipur, Hyderabad and Kolkata from January 7 to 14.

Besides meeting government officials, a US Embassy press release said the delegation would be meeting business leaders to explore ‘opportunities to expand business, trade, defence and cultural relationships between the two countries’.

In a statement issued by the Embassy, Senator Warner said relations had “reached a point where it is time for the US-India relationship to advance from a longtime friendship to a full partnership, and I look forward to identifying and pursuing additional opportunities for our two nations to work more closely together”.
