Mumbai’s U.S. Consulate General’s Assistant Cultural Affairs Officer Sita Raiter emphasised the significance of such collaborations, stating, "We aim to develop international education partnerships through direct personal relationships, alignment on shared global challenges, and improved academic outcomes for Indian and American students." 

Additionally, both sides discussed various topics related to higher education, including research partnership development, student mobility, visa processes, and more.

Furthermore, the agenda encompassed topics such as understanding India's higher education landscape, leveraging opportunities under the National Education Policy 2020, and expanding U.S.-India institutional partnerships. 

Moreover, the discussions focused on increasing the recruitment of Indian students for US campuses and promoting study-abroad opportunities in India for U.S. students.
