Celebration for Bellevue's Indian community

In September the city, the Indo-American Friendship Forum and the Trade Development Alliance of Greater Seattle hosted Nirupama Rao, ambassador of India to the U.S., at a special event at City Hall as a way to celebrate our partnership with the Indian community.

More than 100 people attended -- including City Council members, congressmen Adam Smith and Jim McDermott and representatives from the governor's office, as well as many business and community leaders. The event was an opportunity to enhance relations and discuss future opportunities.

Bellevue's growing and diverse population includes nearly 10,000 residents from Asian Indian decent, a 1,300-percent since 1990.

Ambassador Rao speaks during the event.
