Treasury Secretary Geithner on visit to India to improve ties

NEW DELHI (AP) - Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Indian leaders are trying to expand economic ties between the two countries.

India today invited U.S. companies to invest in developing its infrastructure today during a two day visit by Geithner and other U.S. officials.

India has a fast-growing economy and is a stable ally in a complex region.

Relations between the U.S. and India are at a high point, thanks partly to the Bush administration's push to allow U.S. civilian nuclear trade with India.

The Obama administration has used that as a foundation for improving ties and hopes of cooperation on Washington's priorities of combating terrorism and climate change.
