What is current state of Indo-US relations? :

What is current state of Indo-US relations? Obama welcomed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the first official state visit of his administration in November, and both sides say ties -- a focus for former US President George W. Bush -- are the best they've been for decades. Two-way trade between the two countries, which were on opposing sides in the Cold War, has risen to close to $50 billion from just $5 billion in 1990. But some tensions remain, particularly over Pakistan, and movement to build on pledges of deeper engagement have been slow. US officials say this week's meetings represent a chance for top officials to build relationships that will translate into better policy coordination.

What is holding up better Indo – US ties?:

What is holding up better Indo – US ties? The United States and India this week launch their first "strategic dialogue" as teams of officials work to flesh out a relationship that thus far has been stronger on symbolism than on substance. Both sides note that the United States, the world's oldest democracy, and India, the most populous, are natural global partners which share values and strategic interests across a wide range of topics. But US-India relations remain shadowed by a sense of malaise, with both countries hoping for more concrete results from a partnership still finding its footing.

What is happening in Washington? :

What is happening in Washington? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Foreign Minister S.M. Krishna hope to focus on follow-up from Clinton's India trip last year and laying the groundwork for President Barack Obama's planned visit to India later this year. The two countries have identified five areas for broader cooperation: strategic issues, energy, climate change, education and development, and trade and agriculture. On Wednesday, the US-India Business Council will host a meeting that will be addressed by White House economic adviser Larry Summers while senior diplomats hold discussions on strategic issues including Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and the stand-off over Iran's nuclear program. On Thursday, Clinton and Krishna will chair the main meeting, which will also include senior officials involved with trade, aid, education and national security.

PowerPoint Presentation:

“During my first visit to India, I will be joined by hundreds of American business leaders and their Indian counterparts to announce concrete progress toward our export goal — billions of dollars in contracts that will support tens of thousands of American jobs,” Mr. Obama wrote in an op-ed piece published in The New York Times . “We will also explore ways to reduce barriers to United States exports and increase access to the Indian market,” he said.

What does India want? Political analysts say India is looking for US reassurances that Washington takes New Delhi seriously as a global partner and will not sacrifice Indian interests as it seeks to bolster arch-rival Pakistan in the face of Islamist militant violence. India wants to ensure that its priorities are taken into account in Afghanistan, with fears any Afghan plan to broker a deal with the Taliban could undermine India's security and give Islamabad greater influence there. India will be looking for signs that the United States will provide it access to a Chicago man, David Headley, who pleaded guilty to helping plan the 2008 Mumbai attacks which was blamed on Pakistan-based militants .

PowerPoint Presentation:

The United States is seeking greater Indian cooperation on a number of issues, ranging from trade to climate change. It wants India to finalize details of a civilian nuclear cooperation accord so that US companies can enter its potentially large nuclear power plant market, which could be worth up to $10 billion for US firms such as General Electric. Washington is also keen to see India open up its retail sector, a big plumb for Wal-Mart, while US firms Lockheed Martin and Boeing are in the running for India's planned $11 billion purchase of 126 new fighter jets. India is a major carbon emitter and an influential voice in the world climate change discussion, and the United States is hoping for more Indian support for new emission targets at the next United Nations global warming meeting in Cancun in November. What is US looking for?

Trade Deals :

Trade Deals Deals announced 6.11.2010 include a contract for general electric to provide the indian aeronautical development agency with 107 F414 engines for the tejas light-combat aircraft, a deal worth $822 million and supporting 4,440 jobs, the white house said. Harley-Davidson Motor Company announced it is opening a new plant in India for the assembly of its motorcycles from U.S.-built kits. Boeing also signed a deal to sell 30 of its B737-800 commercial aircraft to Spice Jet, a leading private airline in India. The deal is valued at $2.7 billion and supports nearly 13,000 jobs, the White House said.

Obama announces India-U.S. deals worth USD 10 billion :

Obama announces India-U.S. deals worth USD 10 billion U.S. President Barack Obama on 6.11.2010 announced that “several landmark” deals worth USD 10 billion (nearly Rs 44,000 crore ) have been reached between India and US for creating about 50,000 jobs in the United States. “There is no reason why India cannot be our top trading partner (from 12th position now)… I’m absolutely sure that the relationship between India and the U.S. is going to be one of the defining partnerships of the 21st century,” President Obama said addressing the U.S.-India Business Council (USIBC) meet as he started his three-day maiden visit to India. Easing of export rules could result in ending the technology denial regime against Indian entities such as DRDO and ISRO.
