G20 India | Joe Biden

US Ambassador to India Eric Garcetti, on August 22, said President Joe Biden told him that India is the most important country in the world to him.

“He (President Biden) told me, when he asked me to come here to serve, he said, this is the most important country in the world to me, I think something that no American president has ever uttered in the history of our two countries.
US President Joe Biden will travel to India september 7-10 to attend the G-20 Leader’s summit.

He then talked about how India is strengthening the US and said, “Four million people (Indians) who represent 1 per cent population in America are now 6 per cent of the taxpayers. They are 10 per cent of Fortune 500 CEOs.”

Garcetti on Tuesday highlighted the close collaboration between his country and India in various fields, including technology, trade, environment and space. Garcetti said that Indian Americans comprise six per cent of taxpayers in the US. His statement came ahead of Biden’s visit to India which is slated to take place next month during which the US President will attend the G20 Leaders’ Summit in Delhi.

Recently, the US Ambassador to India completed 100 days after his posting here. He posted a video on his X (formerly known as Twitter) handle, which showed glimpses of his tours to several Indian states. The video also showed him meeting with various political leaders and people.

In a tweet, the envoy said that he was excited to elevate the partnership between India and the US in his tenure.
