US Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economics Daleep Singh will pay an official visit to India. Singh, an Indian American, will be in New Delhi on March 30 and 31, the White House said.

“Singh will consult closely with counterparts on the consequences of Russia’s unjustified war against Ukraine and mitigating its impact on the global economy,” said Emily Horne, spokesperson of the National Security Council of the White House.

Horne said the top Biden Administration official will also discuss priorities of the Biden Administration, including the promotion of high-quality infrastructure through ‘Build Back Better World’ and the development of an Indo-Pacific Economic Framework.

In New Delhi, Singh will continue US administration’s ongoing consultations with India, and advance a range of issues in the US-India economic relationship and strategic partnership.

He will meet Indian officials to deepen cooperation to promote inclusive economic growth and prosperity, and a free and open Indo-Pacific, Horne said.

Singh is the first Asian American elected to Congress. He has a Master of Business Administration and Master of Public Administration in international economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Harvard Kennedy School.

During the Obama Administration, he was deputy assistant secretary of the Treasury for international affairs and acting Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Financial Markets in the Obama administration.

Singh is said to be the architect of economic sanctions against Russia under the Biden Administration. The sanctions, so far, have had a punitive impact on the Russian economy.
