The governors of five U.S. states Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, New Jersey, and Indiana are slated to visit India over the next few months.

India’s current Ambassador, Harsh Vardhan Shringla, has propelled the initiative. He has visited eleven U.S. states so far. He appreciates the effort and says states have an essential say in economic activities, investment, trade, and people-to-people contact. India is happy to host five governors of U.S. States in the next months.
New Jersey's Democratic Governor Phil Murphy is kicking off the slew of these visits from September 13-22.

Global RE-Invest Expo, organized by India's Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, to be held between October 31 and November 2 in Greater Noida will host Jared Polis as a guest.
In 2018, Shringala had energy dialogue between Gujarat and Colorado to support cooperative energy collaboration. The people from Gujrat and Colorado deliberated on opportunities to collaborate on areas such as renewable energy integration, energy storage, utility business models, and innovations. The Colorado energy office and Gujarat Energy Research and Management Institute signed an agreement to promote policy exchange on the integration of renewable energy and other issues.
Despite the urge by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to cancel his trip to India, he is ready to go ahead with the tour. He wants to empower the cultural, educational, and political bonds between New Jersey and India.
