MUMBAI, India — Today, United States Senator Jon Ossoff from the State of Georgia arrived in Mumbai to begin his eight-day economic delegation to India.
“I am leading this U.S. delegation to strengthen the friendship between our nations and to meet the next generation of Indian leaders,” said Senator Ossoff. “We will also work to represent the Indian American community in Georgia, where the growing Indian diaspora is a thriving and beloved part of our community.“
At 35 years old, Senator Ossoff is the youngest United States Senator elected in three decades. During his visit, Senator Ossoff will work to strengthen economic, scientific, cultural, and security ties between the United States and India. The State of Georgia, which Sen. Ossoff represents in the U.S. Senate, is home to over 100,000 Indian Americans.
Earlier this month, Senator Ossoff sent a message to the Indian people celebrating the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence Day where he highlighted the importance of deepening ties between the two countries.
Prior to his election, Senator Ossoff led a team that investigated and exposed corruption, war crimes, and terrorism for international news organizations. In 2021, he won a crucial underdog election to secure the Senate majority for the Democratic Party.
During his first two years in office, Senator Ossoff has written and passed legislation to strengthen civil rights, to boost domestic solar energy manufacturing, and to improve public health while leading bipartisan investigations of abuse and corruption as the Chairman of the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations.
