Meeting with new U.S. Charge d’Affaires a.i., Ambassador Kathleen Stephens – 11th June 2014

The new U.S. Charge d’Affaires a.i., Ambassador Kathleen Stephens, addressed members of Amcham’s National Executive Board and Chairmen / Co-Chairmen of Sectoral Committees on 11th June 2014 at Gurgaon. Ambassador Stephens said that there was great opportunity for business between U.S. and India and the U.S. Government was very keen to take Indo-U.S. relations to a new high, particularly after the new Government led by Prime Minister Modi was sworn in.


That was another reason why Ambassador Stephens was posted to India to kick-start bilateral relations. U.S. was looking forward to Prime Minister Modi’s visit to the U.S. in September 2014. Alongwith the high level visit, it was expected that strategic dialogue between the two countries would also take place.

Ambassador Stephens’ address was followed by brief presentations made by Committee Chairmen/Co-Chairmen.
