Barack Obama enthusiastic about prospect of greater Indo-US ties: White House

US President Barack Obama, is very enthusiastic about the prospect of increased Indo-US collaboration, economic growth for American companies and investments in India, the White House has said.

“Generally speaking, in terms of the US-India partnership, which you’ve referenced, the President is very enthusiastic about the prospect of increased collaboration, increased economic growth for American companies, and investments in India,” the White House spokesperson, Eric Schultz, told reporters yesterday.

“You heard that from his recent trip there a few months ago. But just because he is not over there right now, that doesn’t mean we don’t have key members of our team working on this,” he said in response to a question.

Obama had visited India last as a Chief Guest at the Republic Day celebrations.

“So economic growth across the world, remains a priority for this President and oftentimes that manifests itself in investments in foreign countries. And India is very high on that list,” Schultz said.
