WATCH: Biden, Modi hold meeting with U.S. and Indian business leaders

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday joined top American and Indian executives in talks to increase cooperation between the two countries on artificial intelligence, semiconductor production and space.

On the final day of Modi’s four-day state visit, the leaders put a spotlight on the “Innovation Handshake,” a new initiative aimed at addressing regulatory hurdles that stand in the way of partnership between the two countries.

“Our countries are taking innovation and cooperation to new levels,” Biden told the group, which included Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. “We’re going to see more technological change … in the next 10 years than we’ve seen in the last 50 years.”

White House officials say India’s deep talent pool will be crucial in building more resilient supply chains and developing technology to address climate change. All this comes as the administration has sought to put the U.S.-India relationship on a higher plane in the face of an ascendant China in the Indo-Pacific.

Modi commended Biden for seeing “the possibility that India represents.”

As part of Modi’s state’s visit — the first by an Indian leader since Manmohan Singh in 2009 — the two leaders announced several major investments by U.S.-based companies in India.

Micron Technology has agreed to build a $2.75 billion semiconductor assembly and test facility in India, with Micron spending more than $800 million and India financing the rest. U.S.-based Applied Materials will launch a new semiconductor center for commercialization and innovation in India, and Lam Research, another semiconductor manufacturing equipment company, will start a training program for 60,000 Indian engineers.

On the space front, India signed on to the Artemis Accords,

Del Paso Boulevard business owners hold security meeting to respond to break-ins and shooting

SACRAMENTO — Business owners on Del Paso Boulevard continue to work overnight hours securing their block to keep their business safe from break-ins and burglaries. 

Wednesday, the Del Paso Boulevard Partnership met for a regularly scheduled security meeting, held every other month. This week, the meeting was emotional and focused on the spikes in crime related to the burglaries and break-ins of small businesses along Del Paso Boulevard. 

Officers from the Sacramento Police Department were on hand to update community members about their investigations and listened as business owners shared concerns and ideas about the latest wave of crimes. The headlines, they say, don’t define the entire block and say business owners are invested in the community and keeping it safe. 

“This is small business America, it’s not a corporation, it’s community. It’s people,” said one business owner, who did not want to be identified out of safety concerns. His business has been burglarized twice in the last 10 days, one of those incidents, he was able to chase down the suspects and turn evidence in to Sacramento police detectives. He also retrieved the stolen items. 

He is one of the multiple business owners who meet when the sun goes down to walk the street and alleys to keep their storefronts protected. 

In the May security meeting, the Del Paso Boulevard Partnership shared information on affordable solar lights for businesses that they will help install if needed. They also shared information about a push to install more cameras along the corridor. 

An idea for future security is adding Sacramento Police Officers on bicycle or foot patrols, but this is a challenge, as the department has 100 sworn officer positions open right now. 

Howie Ditkof, a board member of the Del Paso Boulevard Partnership, told CBS13 he is concerned about the

NEW YORK — South America is not likely to have a common currency bloc to rival the euro any time soon, analysts said on Monday, despite excited chatter sparked by officials in Brazil and Argentina raising the prospect of a shared tender.

On Monday Brazil’s President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and Argentine President Alberto Fernandez said they were in early talks to establish a shared unit of value for bilateral trade, though this would not replace the real or peso currencies.

That came after the leaders had touted a “common South American currency” on Sunday and officials told the Financial Times the tender could even be called the “sur” and eventually look to bring in other countries around South America.

Analysts were quick to knock that down, following decades of similar talk with little to show for it, including shelved plans for a so-called “gaucho” for Argentina-Brazil trade in 1987 and former Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro
