Indian business makes news in the US

Written by: Staff

Chandigarh, May 12 (UNI) The business and trade activity in India has been getting enhanced coverage in the U S media of late, according to a media expert from the US.

''The US media has an an all time high interest in the business and trade activity in India these days, said Mr Brant Houston, Executive Director of Investigative Reporters and Editors, while talking to reporters at the Chandigarh Press Club here.

However, the US media was otherwise interested in only ''apparent issues'' from India like the heat wave or an earth quake, said Ms Nora Paul of the Centre of Media Studies of the University of Minnesota.

Regarding the perception of India in the US media, she said it was complex. While India was an emerging high-tech power for some people, it is seen as a poverty stricken country for others.

On the ''growing anti-US sentiment'' in India or the Southeast Asia, Ms Paul said this could be because of ''what our government is doing in certain parts of the world.'' Mr Houston earlier delivered a talk on investigating reporting while Ms Paul spoke on web-assisted reporting. They, along with World Press Institute Executive Director John Ullmann, were in the city to conduct a workshop on journalism at the Panjab University.
