HYDERABAD (PTI): The United States will work with the Indian government and private sector to make the country a regional aviation hub, American Ambassador Timothy J Roemer said here Wednesday.

"The USA will work with Indian public and private sector partners to create economic opportunities and jobs in both the countries," he said addressing the India Aviation 2010 conference, organised jointly by the Ministry of Civil Aviation and apex industry body FICCI here.

Under the US-India Aviation Programme, a public-private partnership project, Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) will be involved in the work on helicopter aviation security, he said. The United States is the focus country in the five-day aviation event, while France is a partner country.

The US companies participating in the show are ready to partner with India on its goal of modernising and upgrading airports, improving air traffic flow and "making it a regional aviation hub," the US envoy said.

He urged US business community to seize every opportunity that comes across during the event to facilitate greater cooperation between the two counties in the aviation sector.

"I would encourage American and Indian business leaders and policymakers to take this opportunity to share ideas on how our countries can work together better," Roemer said.
