Given the growth potential of India, there is a strong need for policy initiatives that accelerate the economic growth agenda and also unleashes the vibrant Indo-US relationship.
In general, the breadth and depth of collaboration between India and the US across a number of policy initiatives has progressed well. However, there is significant opportunity to develop focused policy initiatives that not only accelerate the economic growth agenda for India, for example by increasing foreign direct investment (FDI), investment in innovation and research, collaboration in alternative energy technology, but also deepens the collaboration in geopolitical issues, regional security and defence, among others.
India-US Chair Collaboration
in Economic Growth-driving Policy
To act as a catalyst for collaborative economic growth policy agenda, the Wadhwani Foundation has established a Chair in India-US Policy at the Center for Strategic and International Studies - a leading policy “think tank” based in Washington DC and a parallel program at Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER), New Delhi.
The Foundation also plans to fund a companion policy program in India.
