Bloomberg News provided additional cues as to what Obama's visit to India was really about, including $4.5 billion worth of Boeing C-17 Globemaster III military transport aircraft:
"With Obama in attendance, Indian companies and ministries will probably ink a half a dozen deals with U.S. outfits, some of them months in the making. There's a $4.5 billion order for Boeing C-17 transports, says Ron Somers, president of the U.S.-India Business Council. He says the Indians may announce a $4 billion contract for either GE or Caterpillar (CAT) to supply diesel locomotives."
