Event report - Indo-US Relations (CPPR + USCG) (2)_001

The India–US relations have undergone a transformative change since 1947. The two countries have found common grounds with the increasing convergence of interests and democratic values. The US is one of India’s strongest strategic partners and high-level diplomatic visits have further improved the bilateral relations between the two nuclear powers. The India–US relations have become multi-dimensional with improved cooperation in the fields of security and defence, trade and investment, science and technology, environment, agriculture, education, space technology, cybersecurity, nuclear energy, health, etc. The India–US partnership is founded on a shared commitment to freedom, democratic principles, equal treatment of all citizens, human rights, and the rule of law. The countries have shared interests in promoting global security, stability, and economic prosperity through trade, investment, and connectivity. The US supports India’s emergence as a leading global power and vital partner in efforts to ensure that the Indo-Pacific is a region of peace, stability, and growing prosperity.

CPPR in collaboration with the US Consulate General in Chennai launched the project titled, ‘US–India Partners for Change’. The project aims to create an inclusive and conducive platform for subject experts and stakeholders from India and the US to engage in discussions to enhance convergences and synergies between India and the US, primarily in four focus areas: 1) US–India Trade Relations, 2) US–India Science and Technology Cooperation, 3) Indo–Pacific Strategy, and 4) US and India as partners in global climate initiatives. CPPR has organised four webinars, each focusing on one of the focus areas where an Indian and an American subject expert deliberated and spoke to an online audience.

The finale of the project is the two-day conference to be held in Kochi.
