GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Indian ambassador to the United States visited the BMW plant in Spartanburg County on Thursday.

Nirupama Rao's visit is part of a three-day tour through South Carolina aimed at strengthening relationships with politicians and business leaders in the state.

The ambassador said her country can learn a lot from the Palmetto State.

"What I would look at when it came to South Carolina is to see how we could learn from your experience in infrastructure development, particularly the way the Charleston Port is run and the kind of integration that you have been able to achieve," said Rao.

Rao met with South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley on Wednesday. She said the Indian-American governor is a celebrity in her country.
