Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential election against all odds has given rise to a world of uncertainty regarding America’s global role. The implications of this victory for India are a hot topic that is worth an in-depth analysis.
The talk will explore how the next US administration would influence India’s core interests as a rising power and how Indo–US relations would evolve bilaterally and regionally in Asia.
