Mumbai, March 04 2019: The U.S. Consulate General in Mumbai hosted its annual town hall and picnic for U.S. Citizens and their immediate family members on March 2, 2019. U.S. Consul General Edgard Kagan and Consular Chief Robert Batchelder welcomed nearly 1000 U.S. citizens and family members who participated in the long-planned event.
In 2018, more than one million U.S. citizens entered India, making U.S. citizens the largest group of foreign visitors to India. Remarking on the U.S. presence in India, the Consul General said, “U.S. citizens with Indian families and Indian citizens with American families bridge our countries with daily interaction. In many ways, they are our best ambassadors for the United States in its relationship with India.”
The welfare of U.S. citizens overseas and the further strengthening of U.S.-India relations are the Consulate’s top priorities. Consular Chief Robert Batchelder encouraged attendees to learn about U.S. passport services, voting from overseas, and being prepared for emergencies. He also expressed interest in hearing from U.S. citizens about their “ideas and successes in building people-to-people connections in India.”
Highlights of the Town Hall included games and activities for children and families and a presentation on studying in the U.S. from EducationUSA.
