Hilary foresees fruitful Indo-US partnership

Written by: Staff

Washington, Aug 19: In response to questions texted during her visit to India in Jul, Hilary Clinton said India's economic growth can benefit both the countries if the Indo- US partnership is well maintained.

The US Secretary of State also added that Americans need not fear of losing jobs or low wage rates due to its relationship with India.

Clinton's response to the select questions are now posted on the State Department's website.

"India's six per cent growth rate is a bright spot amid the global economic downturn, and bilateral trade and investment flows between our nations have doubled in the last five years," she said.

She added that 300 million middle class Indian burgeons represented a vast market of new possibilities.

"Our countries should work together to open that market and spread the benefits of sustainable prosperity. We and the rest of the world have a lot to gain from our enhanced cooperation," Clinton said in her reply to a question from William in Kentucky.

"How can we maintain good diplomatic relations with India while at the same time we are trying to claim our jobs back for the US that went overseas?" William asked.
