India would stay high priority for the next US President irrespective of who succeeds this year’s presidential elections says Richard Rahul Verma, US Ambassador to India.
According to him, he is confident that the Indo-US ties would continue to be of high priority for whoever gets the control of White House or Congress.
On the current hike in visa fees for H-1B visas, from $2000 to $4000, he says that it was the decision of Congress for increasing the funds and was not targeted at any particular nation. He also added that there is an ongoing dialogue between the firms and Congress members moving ahead on the affect of these fees. He goes on saying that India that has got the loins shares of H-1B and the majority of L-1 visa do not require to worry.
Mr Verma also said that previous year started with the US President’s visit and it’s been a record-breaking year for the Indo-US ties in a lot of ways like trade and commerce, defence cooperation, Indian students going to the US or the US firms coming to India.
