    Guwahati, Feb 27 : United States Ambassador Peter Burleigh on Saturday said trade missions from his country will visit the north eastern region soon to explore possibility of investment in key sectors.

    "Trade missions of US to India's major cities are going on and we are in the process of expanding it to other areas including the north east," he told reporters here.

    "We are learning about increasing business opportunities in the N E region and American companies have shown interest for investments," the envoy, who is on a visit to Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, said.

    Climate change and renewal of energy were being focussed on by the USA, Burleigh said his country was, however, open to collaboration in almost all major areas of interest. "We are open to exploring virtually any area for investment."

    USA was currently participating in a conservation programme at Kaziranga National Park in Assam, he said and expressed satisfaction at the 'amazing' pace of development activities taking place in the state and its congenial atmosphere for investment.

    Thumbs up to the US of A. The next generation of people from the NE would be able to find a job and flourish in their home states, if the conjoined twins of corruption and terrorism can be tackled. NE has great potential, amazing climate, unbeatable landscapes, and very friendly people.

    Possibly but we don't want more missionaries from their churches to create problems here.

    I just hope US means genuine capitalist investments like industry rather than "harvesting" like Philippines.

    Absolutely. I too had similar thought.
