Mumbai: U.S. Consul General Thomas Vajda visited the “grape city” of Nashik October 26-27, 2015 as part of his outreach to the different cities in western India in support of greater opportunities for U.S.-India trade and investment. During what was his first visit to Nashik, Consul General Vajda visited the Lord Corporation; a North Carolina-based tech and manufacturing company that develops adhesives, coatings, and motion management devices. He also visited Mylan Labs; a large generics and specialty pharmaceutical company based in Pennsylvania with operations in Nashik.
Outside of his business meetings, Consul General Vajda visited several of Nashik’s cultural sites. At the Dadasaheb Phalke memorial museum, he learned about the life of the “Father of Indian cinema.” He also toured the 2000-year-old Pandavleni Buddhist caves and the organization Pragati Abhiyan, where he observed firsthand their work to promote rural development and overcome poverty.
Consul General Vajda’s Nasik visit highlights U.S. government’s commitment to deepen people-to-people relationships and strengthen bilateral business and cultural ties.
