NEW DELHI: The U.S. citizens are concerned about business processes being outsourced to countries like India, according to the visiting U.S. Senator, John Edwards.

He was talking to the Indian Parliamentarians at an interactive session organized by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham).

Edwards said, “The unemployment scenario creates complications and people in the U.S. are opposing the trend of business process outsourcing and indicated that employment creation should be the top priority of any administration and the U.S. was particularly concerned about the loss of jobs of its citizens.”

The senator sought co-operation between India and the U.S. in areas of mutual economic interest, particularly nuclear energy. Sachin Pilot, Member of Parliament, in his observation said that the U.S. should not forge relations with India keeping Pakistan in mind and a new era of relationships should be developed between the two largest democracies of the world.
