US President Donald Trump's aide to be next US envoy to India

22 Juin 2017

Juster, a top aide of US President Donald Trump, is set to be America's new ambassador to India, the White House said on Wednesday.

Juster also got drafted into the trusted circles of Trump and was entrusted with important responsibilities such as president's representative and lead U.S. negotiator ('Sherpa') for the annual G-7, G-20, and APEC Summits.

Juster has been a pro-India voice ever since he was an Under-secretary in the US Department of Commerce in the George W Bush administration. The Indians will welcome him enthusiastically. He was also one of the key architects of the Next Steps in Strategic Partnership initiative between the United States and India. "He is a known quantity", Tellis told The Washington Post. Josh Rogin, the columnist, said four White House officials had confirmed Kenneth Juster's impending appointment and that Juster was in the process of getting more clearances before a formal announcement.

Richard Verma, the first Indian-American to head this position, had resigned when Trump replaced Barack Obama as the President of the US. The Indian government has also endorsed the appointment. This formed the foundation for the landmark civil nuclear agreement between the two countries in 2008.

His wealth of experience in government and playing a crucial role in the India-US high technology group which dealt with issues related to the lifting of sanctions and dual-technology use might come handy. "He holds a law degree from the Harvard Law School, a master's degree in Public Policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, and a bachelor's degree in Government from Harvard College".

Juster previously served as the under secretary of commerce (2001-2005), counsellor (acting) of the department of state (1992-1993), deputy and senior adviser to deputy secretary of state Lawrence S Eagleburger (1989-1992), and law clerk to judge James L Oakes of the U.S. court of appeals for the second circuit (1980-1981). It says that the private equity, Warburg Pincus, firm where Juster worked previously, has been pouring money into Indian companies.
