“I have found in the last four days that I have been addressing investors, meeting investors and dealing with their queries. I see a certain positive mood about India,” Mr Jaitley said yesterday.
After reaching Washington, Mr Jaitley met with US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and discussed issues on bilateral trade.
“Appreciated discussing US-India bilateral economic issues” with Mr Jaitley, Mr Mnuchin later tweeted.
Today, Mr Jaitley is scheduled to participate in a meeting of G-20 finance ministers and central bank governors. Later, he will meet with his counterparts from Italy and Iran to discuss bilateral ties.
Mr Jaitley would meet with the Iranian finance minister hours after US President Donald Trump announces his new Iran policy. Later in the evening, the finance minister will participate in an event hosted by US India Strategic Partnership Forum.
