US Ambassador to India Kenneth I Juster called on Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki here as part of his first familiarisation tour to Northeast.

During the meeting, the chief minister explained the tourism potential of the state and other promising sectors like cultural diversity, industry, education and scope of natural resource based economic activities to the US envoy.
