The Washington Examiner, September 17, 2019:
“The optics and message are clear and it leverages America’s leadership to work out a trade deal with China,” International Leaders Summit co-founder Joel Anand Samy, who is organizing a U.S.-India Leaders Summit in Washington on Wednesday, told the Washington Examiner. “Importantly, if America and India can come to agreement with a combined consumer base of 1.6 billion people, then it sends a loud signal to businesses and markets that pursuing a level-playing field and calling for a fair trade deal is working.” — The Washington Examiner
