In a joint statement, India and the US vowed to put an end to issues such as the outsourcing ban of Ohio and the increase in visa fees before the visit to India of US president Barack Obama.
Indian Minister of Commerce and Industry Anand Sharma aired India’s concerns about the anti-outsourcing moves of the US, saying that the trend “had created an avoidable feeling of negativity in the service sector." Sharma said, "when the global economy is still reeling from the aftershocks of the economic crisis and coming out of the recession any inward looking step of protectionist measure would slow down the pace of recovery and deepen the recession."
It was reported earlier that India criticized the passage of a US bill stating that visa fees for IT workers coming to the US will increase. This was followed by the issuance of an executive order in Ohio, banning the transfer of government IT and back office projects offshore.
