Mumbai: Commerce and industry minister Kamal Nath will meet US trade representative Susan Schwab early next week as part of the US-India trade policy forum, Sean Spicer, a spokesman for Schwab''s office, said.

The two are expected to discuss ways of boosting business ties as well as last-ditch efforts to reach a world trade deal, the US trade office said.

The two will also have discussions with top business executives from leading companies in the United States and India. The two are also expected to discuss a free trade agreement between the United States and India, although it could be years before any negotiations are launched.

Brazil''s foreign minister Celso Amorim, his country''s lead trade negotiator, is also expected to attend that session, Spicer said.
