In her keynote address at the plenary session, US ambassador to India Nancy J Powell said that a trade mission from her country would visit the state in February 2013.
This business delegation would be the first of its kind in the trade relations between the US and Kerala.
The US ambassador said that bilateral trade between India and the US has grown five-fold in recent times, touching $90 billion last year.
“It is expected to cross $100 billion this year, but the share of Kerala is very less. But it has greater prospects, and we have developed a special strategy,” she said.
