The co-chairs of Washington State–India Trade Relations Action Committee (WASITRAC), Debadutta Dash and Habib M. Habib, were invited to the White House policy briefing, followed by the White House holiday celebration on Dec. 20.

The panel had many senior officials from the White House and the administration. Among the topics of discussion were immigration and healthcare.

“Quite contrary to the adverse political outcry due to the not-so-successful rollout of the Affordable Care Act, the changes will bring in much good news for millions of Americans without any healthcare coverage and this includes hundreds of thousands of international students,” Dash said. (end)
