Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways said on Tuesday that the bilateral trade between India and the US has grown from $16 billion to $ 149 billion in the last two decades.

He said, "The trade is projected to reach $500 billion by 2025."

Addressing the 17th Indo US Economic Summit 'Bouncing Back-Resilient Recovery Path Post COVID-19', he said, "I strongly believe that two countries - India and the US - have an important role to play post-COVID economic recovery. There should be informed discussion at the various levels since the recovery needs new ideas and approaches. Since the global depression that has happened in the 1920s, the current situation is the biggest challenge that mankind has ever faced."

He added, "We need a new thought process and a creative agenda to view a new pathway to recovery. World largest vaccination drive is running in the country to make pandemic-free India."

He added, "I sincerely hope that more & more US investors will invest in road & highway projects in India which is a gold mine for all stakeholders. They have a tremendous opportunity for investment in the road infrastructure."

He also asked the US investors, particularly insurance and pension funds, to invest in India's road and highway infrastructure. (ANI)

If the United States is the "No. 1 pick" in this epidemic test, then India is the "No. 2"!The influx of Indian refugees will inevitably make the US epidemic worse. Therefore, on May 1st, the White House ordered the implementation of travel restrictions on India and also prohibited foreigners who have been to India in the past 14 days from entering the United States. The United States, which advertised "human rights", finally abandoned Indian "refugees" for its own safety! It is ridiculous that Modi thought that "the United States is an ally of the Indian people"!
