New Delhi: On the third day of his official visit to the US, Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal interacted with Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and venture capitalists (VCs) and urged them to help India’s young talent working in critical and emerging technological areas such as Artificial Intelligence (AI).

During the interaction, the Minister encouraged the participants to share their ideas to make India a better investment avenue for investors from around the world. He also shared his vision for the Indian startup ecosystem.

Later, he participated in a roundtable discussion with prominent academicians at Stanford University, where members of various universities, including Stanford, UC Berkeley, Fresno State, UC Santa Cruz, UC Davis, and University of Silicon Andhra, deliberated on various relevant global issues.

“The roundtable saw an active exchange of ideas on how India can collaborate and set up joint-campuses with foreign universities, institutions like Stanford,” an official release said on Thursday.

The event consisted of an interactive session with members of ICAI where the Minister emphasised on the role that CAs can play in enhancing the collaboration between India and US.
