Furthermore, the minister is anticipated to interact with the Indian diaspora, engage with think-tank communities, and discuss with corporate sector leaders.
Jaishankar, who had just concluded his address at the 78th General Assembly session of the United Nations in New York and arrived in Washington DC, is also slated to meet with the US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, later in the day.
