In the recently held annual meeting in Omaha, Buffett said his company is keen on Indian insurance business. Berkshire’s main businesses are in insurance and reinsurance areas.

Interestingly, Buffett revealed his India visit plan in response to a question asked by, Sabrina Chugh, a 12-year-old Indian American at the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting. Buffett said that he is eyeing India and will make a trip to India in March next year.
