HOUSTON: U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and Consul General of India in Houston Harish Parvathaneni met last week to discuss the economy, energy, trade and immigration, as well as express admiration for the active role Indian Americans are taking in Texas’ communities. They issued the following statements after their meeting:

“I was pleased to have the opportunity to meet with Consul General Harish and discuss the issues that are so important to both our countries. Today’s global environment provides many opportunities for our nations to partner, and it is encouraging to see all that Indian Americans in Texas are doing to foster strong community,” said Sen. Cornyn, co-chairman and an original co-founder of the Senate India Caucus.

“Senator Cornyn has been a great votary of strong economic engagement between US and India. With enhanced prospects for cooperation in the field of energy in view of the US shale gas revolution, we will witness in the next few years LNG exports from US to India. This will have a huge significance for Indian households and the industry. We look forward to Senator Cornyn’s support to realize the promising prospects in this regard for Indian and US companies,” said Consul General Harish.
