US defence secretary James Mattis likely to visit India in NovemberNew Delhi, Aug 1, 2017: In a sign of the Trump administration deepening its ties with India, the two countries are currently planning visits by at least two key members of the US government to India in the next three-four months, besides one by the US president’s daughter Ivanka Trump.

Expected soon in New Delhi are US defence secretary James Mattis and energy secretary Rick Perry. Trump’s daughter Ivanka is to visit India in November for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit likely to be held in Hyderabad.

All these flow from the June visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Washington to meet President Donald Trump —the first face-to-face meeting between the two leaders since Trump took office on 19 January.

“The Modi visit to the US was extremely successful certainly in the eyes of business—both American and Indian businesses. So you see on the government side, a number of positive, upcoming engagements,” said Khush Choksy, acting president of the US-India Business Council, a business lobby group for Indian and US businesses based in Washington.
