Chennai, July 18 (IANS) US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who began her three day visit to India Monday, is expected to visit the Tamil Nadu capital Wednesday.

She will be the first serving US secretary of state to visit Chennai, which has American investments from automobile companies like Ford Motor Company, Caterpillar and others.

Officials at the US Consulate here told IANS that Clinton’s Chennai itinerary is yet to be finalised and the media will be informed later.
