Gabbard says the potential for the relationship between the United States and India is extremely bright.

She’s meeting with leaders in the fields of military, government, education, technology, tourism, environmental protection and renewable energy.

Gabbard also will explore opportunities for women and children.

She’s also carving out time for executives in the Indian Film Industry to create more opportunities for the industry in Hawaii.
