Douglas Busvine and Krista Mahr     January 26, 2015

US President Barack Obama on Monday announced government-backed investments and lending to the country worth US $4 billion as he sought to scale up a trade relationship he said was "defined by so much untapped potential".

At a CEO summit hosted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the national capital, Obama said that US Export-Import Bank would finance US $1 billion in exports of 'Made-in-America' products.

The Overseas Private Investment Corporation will lend US $1 billion to small- and medium-sized enterprises in the country's underserved rural areas.

The US Trade and Development Agency for renewable energy will invest another $2 billion, the US President said in a speech.
