Jaitley raises H1-B Visa issue with US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has strongly raised the H-1B visa issue with US Commerce Secretary, Wilbur Ross. In their meeting in Washington, Jaitley told Ross about the contribution of highly skilled Indians in the economic development of the United States and India and stressed that they should continue to do so, which is in the best interest of the two countries.

US Commerce Secretary said, Washington has started the process of reviewing H1B visas issues and no decision has been taken on it yet. However, he said whatever the outcome of the review process, the administration’s objective is to have a merit-based immigration policy that gives preference to highly skilled professionals.

The executive order signed by Trump early this week calls for a review of H-1B visas by the departments of State, Labour, Homeland Security and Justice. Jaitley, is leading an Indian delegation, to attend the annual Spring meeting of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
