Celebrating US-India Relations

Since India's economic reforms in 1991, the nation has grown to be a South Asian economic tiger and a behemoth, which has aided in the development of a tight economic relationship with the US.

We commemorate both the 75th anniversary of India's independence and the 75th anniversary of US-India relations this August.

The United States and India's relationship has been named the most significant strategic alliance of the twenty-first century.

We have seen how the connection between the oldest and biggest democracy in the world has evolved from symbolic platitudes to robust interactions spanning commerce, defence, climate, and technology.

Since India's economic reforms in 1991, the nation has grown to be a South Asian economic tiger and economic behemoth, which has contributed to the development of a strong economic alliance between our two nations.

We have seen how American businesses have tapped into the Indian market by utilising India's trained workforce and booming economic growth from my years working in the private sector, notably the technology industry.

The total bilateral commerce in products and services between the US and India reached a record $157 billion in 2018, a significant rise from the trade figures for 2020.
