Prime Minister granted independent rights to states to promote trade and culture with foreign countries: Hry Guv
Haryana Governor Bandaru Dattatreya said on Sunday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had granted independent rights to states to promote trade, education, tourism, art and culture with foreign countries.
This has opened up new avenues of progress for states in various fields, he said during his exchanges with the ambassadors, high commissioners and representatives of seven countries who came to meet him in the Haryana Raj Bhawan here, according to a official press release.
Fiji High Commissioner Kamlesh Shashi Prakash, Papua New Guinea High Commissioner Paulias Carni Obe, Kormos Union General Counsel KL Ganjoo and Burkina Faso Head of Consular Affairs Collibelli D. Herbe were among those present, he said.
The Governor of Haryana welcomed all the delegates and said that with such large-scale visits and meetings, the relations between our country and the states with foreign countries will be further strengthened.
“It will also lead to progress in the fields of trade, agriculture, art and culture, education, environment and other fields between other states and countries”, he said in the statement.
He said that with the independence granted to Indian states in foreign affairs by the central government, they can directly enter into memoranda of understanding with foreign countries.
Dattatreya said there is immense potential for cooperation between Pacific countries and Haryana.
From higher education to skills development, from IT services to food grain development, Haryana is ready to work in all fields and partner with all countries, he said.
