Atlanta, Ga. — Today, United States Senator Jon Ossoff announced that he will lead an eight-day economic delegation to India arriving in Mumbai on August 30th and departing New Delhi on September 6th, 2022.
“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.“
During his visit, Senator Ossoff will work to strengthen economic, scientific, cultural, and security ties between the state of Georgia and India. Georgia is home to over 100,000 Indian Americans.
Since his election, Sen. Ossoff has delivered for communities in every part of Georgia, successfully building bipartisan relationships to achieve results even in a divided Congress and polarized national political environment.
Sen. Ossoff has passed into law targeted investments to upgrade infrastructure, public health, public safety, and education across Georgia — for example, investing in higher education, removing lead pipes from drinking water systems, funding law enforcement and mental health services, helping more students get job training in the cybersecurity field, and supercharging American manufacturing of solar energy technology.
This week, 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.
