Newsom Tracker: At work in India

There is no official word from Gavin Newsom's office about his trip to India, but it appears the mayor is busy.

Newsom is visiting Bangalore, India, for a sister-city trip, and he is reportedly meeting with business leaders and government officials while there.

Early Monday morning — which is mid-afternoon there — Newsom wrote on his Twitter that he had signed six agreements and held a press conference with the chief minister of Karnataka. Bangalore is the capital city of Karnataka, a state in India. Newsom wrote that the agreements, called memorandum of understanding, are to expand Bagalore-Bay Area ties.

Check back for details about the agreements and any more news from Newsom's trip.
