EVENT ADVISORY: The United States and India: Forging an Indispensable Democratic Partnership

Washington, D.C. — The relationship between the United States and India has become an important priority for both nations and is increasingly important for advancing their shared interests of promoting economic prosperity, security, and democratic institutions. Over the past year, the Center for American Progress organized a binational group of Indian and American experts in a wide variety of fields to work together to craft a vision for the future of U.S.-India relations.

The resulting task force report, “The United States and India: Forging an Indispensable Democratic Partnership,” outlines a path forward for the bilateral relationship, along with a series of concrete recommendations that both sides can take to advance shared interests. The report focuses on five key areas: investing in jobs and economic opportunities; building a clean energy future from the bottom up; creating a U.S.-India security advantage in Asia; strengthening democratic institutions at home and around the world; and strengthening ties between Indians and Americans.

Please join CAP for the release of the report and a discussion with the task force co-chairs—former ambassadors Nirupama Rao and Richard Verma—on the future of the U.S.-India relationship.
