A group of senior US officials will travel to India next week for the meeting between the US-India 2nd Session and the Maritime Security Dialogue, according to the State Department.
The delegation, which will visit India from September 5 to 8, will be led by Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Donald Low. In a statement Saturday, the department said its goal is to deepen the comprehensive global strategic partnership between the United States and India.
Lu will be joined by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Camille Dawson at the Quartet Senior Officials Meeting and Assistant Secretary of Defense for Indo-Pacific Security Elly Ratner in the US-India Intersessional 2 2 and the Maritime Security Dialogue.
“The delegation will meet with senior Indian officials to discuss ways in which the United States and India can expand our cooperation in support of a free, open, connected, prosperous, resilient, and secure Indo-Pacific where human rights are respected.” The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
Low will also be joining an event under the US-Indian Alliance for Women’s Economic Empowerment with Women Entrepreneurs. The event aims to increase economic security through the active participation of women in the workforce.
“He will also participate in a roundtable discussion with senior business executives on how India can realize its full economic potential over the next 25 years to become a central hub in global supply chains,” the Foreign Office said.
