The nomination of Ken Juster as the next US Ambassador to India has been welcomed by a new trade body here which said the move sends the right message that Americans value this partnership. Trump yesterday sent to the Senate his nomination of Juster as the next US Ambassador to India. The position has been laying vacant since January 20. “Ken is an inspired choice. He has a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience in the relations between our two countries. For example, he played a major role in developing the US-India- civil nuclear agreement,” John Chambers, chairman of the US India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF), said.

Chambers said Juster also had the vision to put in place the High Technology Cooperation Group (HTCG), which was the need of the hour back then. “I have no doubt that Ken will seize this opportunity to make a lasting impact in further strengthening the relations between the two countries. We look forward to working with him and his team to tap into the immense strategic partnership opportunities between the US and India,” Chambers said.

“President Donald Trump’s nomination of Kenneth Juster as the new Ambassador to India sends the right message that the United States values this partnership. Having served President Trump and worked closely with members of his White House team, Ken will have the ability to work at the highest levels of both the governments,” said Mukesh Aghi, president of USISPF.
