Washington, Jun 9 (PTI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi's state visit to the US later this month at the invitation of President Joe Biden is a powerful signal that the future of the two countries is together, US India Business Council (USIBC) President Atul Keshap has said.

“This is only the third state visit for the Biden administration. India is now one of our closest friends. The fact that the prime minister and the president have agreed to this, their coming together is a powerful signal from the top of each government that our future is together,” Keshap told PTI in an interview.

Responding to a question on expectations from the visit, Keshap said he is hoping that it will send a powerful signal to the business communities of both countries that they are the preferred partners for each other and that there can be investment and trade in both directions with approval of the two governments.
