WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Finance officials from the United States and India will work to find ways to access the vast untapped trade potential between the two countries in economic talks next week focused on infrastructure and capital market reforms, a senior Treasury official said on Wednesday.

The official told a news briefing that closer economic cooperation would help the United States meet its goal of making India one of its top 10 trading partners.
