While the U.S. President Donald Trump is trying to introduce a new era of protectionism conceived around his slogan of ‘buy American and hire American,’ India is urging America to employ Indian workers.

The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi highlighted the role of skilled Indian talent in enriching the American economy and society. He urged developing a reflective, balanced and farsighted perspective on movement of skilled professionals.

Modi was meeting Tuesday a bi-partisan delegation of 26 members of the United States Congress.

Welcoming the Congressional Representatives to India, Modi said it augurs a good start to bilateral exchanges following the new U.S. Administration and Congress.

He also recalled his positive conversation with President Trump and the shared commitment to further strengthening ties that have grown deeper in the last two and a half years. In this regard, Modi recognized Congress’ strong bipartisan support for the India-U.S. partnership.

Last month, Modi had a telephonic conversation with Trump and both the leaders agreed to work closely to strengthen bilateral ties between the two countries. Modi also invited Trump to visit India.
