Eric Michael Garcetti, the U.S. Ambassador-Nominee to India told the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee in his conformational hearing on Tuesday that the Indian American diaspora is the “bedrock” that connect both nations and strengthens their partnership.

“The bedrock of our partnership are the human ties that connect our nations, embodied by the Four million strong Indian-American diaspora that strengthens our nation and the nearly two hundred thousand Indian students and tens of thousands of Indian professionals who contribute to our economy,” he said.
