“We are preparing to host NATO in Washington, DC next week,” he added, emphasizing India’s growing significance as a tourism market.

Mayor Muriel Bowser also underscored DC’s allure for Independence Day celebrations, expressing pride in the city’s vibrant atmosphere and iconic fireworks display.

“There’s no better place to celebrate the 4th of July than Washington, DC. We boast the best views, backdrop, fireworks show, and camaraderie,” Mayor Bowser shared in a post.
