    LA area has lots of Indians.
    And many Americans and business people are going to India to set up businesses in India or explore.
    India is a great investment destination,
    PM Modi ji slogan is “Make in India”.
    It is a critical need of having Consulate Office in Los Angeles,
    San Francisco Consulate Office is over crowded and very inconvinient and causes delayed actions,
    It is in the best interest of India and people of Indian origin living nearer to LA,
