Deputy Secretary of State Wendy R Sherman will travel to New Delhi on Oct. 6 and to Mumbai on the next day, the State Department said.
“Sherman will be in New Delhi on Oct. 6 for a series of bilateral meetings, civil society events, and the India Ideas Summit. On Oct. 7, she will travel to Mumbai for her engagements with business and civil society,” it said.
