The U.S. will partner public and private sectors to support and modernise the Indian aviation sector, American Ambassador to the country Timothy J. Roemer said here today.

“The USA would work with Indian public and private sector partners to create economic opportunities and jobs in both the countries. US companies participating in the show are ready to partner India for its goal of modernising and upgrading airports, improving air traffic flow and making it a regional aviation hub,” he said. Mr. Roemer was speaking after the inauguration of the US Pavilion at the ‘India Aviation-2010’ - a five-day exhibition and conference on the global aviation sector, which began today.

He advised the US business community to seize every opportunity during the event to facilitate greater co-operation between the two countries in the sector.

“I would encourage American and Indian business leaders and policy makers to take this opportunity to share ideas on how our countries can work better together,” Mr. Roemer said.

“I want to let the US companies here know that our government and our mission in India stand beside you to embrace the opportunities and tackle the challenges in the Indian aviation sector,” he said.

The US is under special focus during ‘Indian Aviation - 2010’ and it was the official partner for the previous edition of the event.
