The Centre for Public Policy Research (CPPR), Kochi, with the support from the U.S. Consulate General in Chennai organised a two-day conference in Kochi, Kerala on April 19-20, 2022. The two day conference was focused around the “India – U.S. relations : Change, Continuity and Transformation”. As the India-U.S. relations continue to develop into a ‘global strategic partnership’, CPPR in collaboration with the U.S. Consulate General, Chennai undertook a project to study the growing relationship between the two countries. The project focused on four areas of cooperation namely, U.S.-India Trade Relations, U.S.-India Science and Technology Cooperation, Indo-Pacific Strategy and U.S. and India as partners in global climate initiatives.

During the course of the project four webinars were organised to discuss and debate on these four areas with experts and scholars from both the countries. However, with the pandemic on the downlow and normalcy returning to its rightful place, CPPR and the U.S. Consulate General, Chennai decided to organise the “Indo-U.S. Relations : Change, Continuity and Transformation Conference”. The Conference was geared towards fostering and enhancing the relationship of the two countries by exploring strategic partnership in the focus areas as mentioned above. This was also the first inperson conference between the two organisations since the pandemic took over the world, which made it all the more important and impactful.
