US Secretary of State John Kerry will highlight the critical role that American technology plays in supporting sustainable economic growth across India during his visit to the country to attend the Vibrant Gujarat Summit next week, his spokesperson said on Tuesday. "The Secretary will join leading US business executives and innovators at the Summit to highlight the critical role that US technology plays in supporting sustainable economic growth across India and the Indo-Pacific region, as well as strengthening trade and investment between the two countries," State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki, told reporters. The Vibrant Gujarat Summit in Gandhinagar will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "This is the first time the United States will join the event as a partner country," Psaki said. Kerry may travel to additional countries, but any other stops would be announced separately, she said.
