Indian diplomat meets with UOG students
The top diplomat with India’s Consulate General in San Francisco recently gave a talk to the members of the University of Guam’s Public Administration and Legal Studies Society (PALS) Program and other students majoring in business, public administration, and criminal justice.
Consul General Nagendra Prasad offered a briefing on Sept. 20 on the economics, demographics, cultures, and geography of India in the context of how the future is taking shape, said Ron McNinch, associate professor and PALS program chair.
Over the years, UOG’s School of Business and Public Administration has encouraged students who have expressed interest to pursue their aspirations for foreign service careers. Inviting diplomats like Prasad supports these efforts.
Prasad is India’s consul general in the nation’s San Francisco consulate general which serves Guam, Hawaii, Alaska, Arizona, California, and Washington in addition to several other states,
Prasad also served as joint secretary at the India Ministry of External Affairs’ Gulf Division. He was India's ambassador to Turkmenistan from July 2014 to January 2018.
