Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - - Nation -

For­mer as­sis­tant sec­re­tary of state Nisha De­sai Biswal was on Tues­day named the new pres­i­dent of the US-In­dia Busi­ness Coun­cil (USIBC).

Biswal pre­vi­ously served as the as­sis­tant sec­re­tary for South and Cen­tral Asian af­fairs dur­ing 2013-2017. Her ten­ure saw a marked in­crease in ties be­tween New Delhi and Wash­ing­ton, and the launch of the US-In­dia Strate­gic and Com­mer­cial Di­a­logue.

“As one of the most sig­nif­i­cant and fastest grow­ing mar­kets, In­dia is an im­por­tant eco­nomic part­ner for the United States," Biswal said in a state­ment af­ter her ap­point­ment by the US Cham­ber of Com­merce.

“Like­wise, In­dian com­pa­nies are in­vest­ing in ever greater num­bers here in the US. I am proud to be part of an or­gan­i­sa­tion which will play such a crit­i­cal role shap­ing US-In­dia re­la­tions, and I am thrilled at the chance to help our com­pa­nies de­liver a brighter, more pros­per­ous fu­ture for the cit­i­zens of the US and In­dia,” she said.

She will join the USIBC on Oc­to­ber 23. “We are thrilled to wel­come Biswal to the US-In­dia Busi­ness Coun­cil and to the US Cham­ber team,” US Cham­ber ex­ec­u­tive vice-pres­i­dent My­ron Bril­liant was quoted by a re­lease as say­ing.
