Despite ongoing turmoil in the Middle East, the Obama administration continues its steady pursuit of a foreign policy makeover, reorienting its attention and resources to the Asia-Pacific—specifically India. Following a number of high-level visits by American officials to India, including Vice President Joe Biden’s trip in July and Secretary of State John Kerry’s trip in June, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will meet with President Barack Obama today during his second official trip to Washington as prime minister.

During the meeting, President Obama and Prime Minister Singh will likely focus on the following six issues in the U.S.-India relationship:

  • Trade and investment
  • Defense cooperation
  • The U.S.-India civil nuclear deal
  • Climate change and clean energy
  • Immigration reform
  • Security issues and the strategic partnership
