For the past few weeks, Barack Obama president-elect is very busy to select and unveiling their new team, starting with the announcements of top national security and economic players. His staff may not be as operational in Washington as it was at campaign headquarters in Chicago. For nearly two years, Obama's political inner circle took great pride in the dearth of public reports about personnel moves, fundraising numbers and staff friction inside his campaign.

The agency review teams for the Obama-Biden transition are charged with completing a thorough review of various departments, agencies and commissions in the US government to craft policy, budgetary and personnel decisions prior to the January 20, 2009 inauguration date.

Barack Obama's victory is an inspiration to NRIs. Most of the NRIs think that Mr. Obama stands for certain values and principles. Perhaps it could energize an young NRIs to take the lead in shaping the country's future. NRIs have been appointed to the Obama-Biden transition team include:

National Security Team: The following NRIs appointed as members of the state, national security, defence, intelligence and arms control agency review team.

  • Natasha Bilimoria
