Wall Street Journal Article-Supporting India US BIT???

In an article today Wall Street Journal talks about the President Obama is trying to lure foreign investment.  What is better way to bring in millions of dollars of foreign investment to US other than the India US BIT with visa provisions?

As we said earlier, US by not having BIT with India has already missed trillions of dollars of investment and millions of jobs.  If White House is really sincere, they should put all efforts behind such treaty and get it ratified by Senate.

I will be posting my comments on this article and try to highlight India-US BIT’s importance.  I urge you to do the same.

Thanks.

How To Get Your Blog Noticed-Including This Blog!!

With thousands of Blogs each day, how one can make their blog noticed by people who matter.

As I found out, one of the best way is to post comments/respond on subjects which are also central to your blog.  How to find such posts/blogs/web pages?  Of course the best way is to search using Google with your blog’s subject as search term.  Once search result come, locate the most appropriate blog and post comments-usually at bottom of post.  For example, I posted comments on Evan A. Feigenbaum’s Blog and he immediately responded with comments.  Now my comment has link to this blog!  Evan is not only scholar-he is equally influential.  See his biography below.

Evan A. Feigenbaum is Adjunct Senior Fellow for East, Central, and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations. He is also the first Executive Director of the Paulson Institute, an independent center, located at the University of Chicago, established by former Treasury Secretary and Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson. Initially an academic with a PhD in Chinese politics, his work has since spanned government service, business, and think tanks, and all three major regions of Asia. From 2001 to 2009, he served at the State Department as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South Asia (2007-09), where he was intimately involved in the final phase of the U.S.-India civil nuclear initiative; Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Central Asia (2006-07); Member of the Policy Planning Staff with principal responsibility for East Asia and the Pacific (2001-06), working on a range of issues related to U.S. relations with China, Korea, Japan, and ASEAN; and as an advisor on China to Deputy Secretary of State Robert B. Zoellick, with whom he worked closely in the development of the U.S.-China Senior Dialogue. Following government service, he was Head of the Asia practice group and a director at Eurasia Group, a global political risk consulting firm working principally for financial institutions and corporate clients. Before government service, he worked at Harvard University.

Our effort should be to post comments on all web pages/blogs which discuss India US trade and/or relations.  You can do same for your blog.  Tomorrow I will talk about another influential person on whose blog I will be posting my comments soon!

Thanks.
