    India and the US are set to sign a bilateral aviation safety agreement (BASA) during US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton's visit next week, an official said on Thursday.

    "BASA has been approved by the cabinet and will be signed during the visit of Hilary Clinton , the US secretary of state," said Civil Aviation Secretary Nasim Zaidi on the sidelines of an event here.

    According to the ministry, the proposed agreement will open up a huge market for export of aeronautical products manufactured in India to US and other regions of the world.

    "This will open up huge potential for investment. It will also usher in mutual acceptance of aeronautical products and parts developed in either country," Zaidi said.
