CPR Dialogues 2020- Indo-US Relations

March 13, 2020


Watch the full video (above) of the panel discussion on ‘Indo-US Relations’ featuring James Steinberg (Professor, Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University and Former United States Deputy Secretary of State); Shivshankar Menon (Former National Security Advisor & Foreign Secretary, India) and moderated by Shekhar Gupta (Founder, ThePrint India).

The historic visit of the US President Donald Trump to India recently has promised to put the relationship between the two countries on a new footing. A close partnership between two of the world’s most significant democracies has long been a stated goal shared by the two governments. Yet successive attempts to deepen this relationship have faced strategic, economic and institutional challenges often resulting in lost opportunities. Situating the India-US relations in the larger global context, this panel attempted to chart out new ways of building on the vast common ground and common visions shared by the two nations.

The panel was organised as part of the second edition of CPR Dialogues, held on 2nd and 3rd March 2020 at the India Habitat Centre. Addressing the theme of Policy Perspectives for 21st-century India, CPR Dialogues 2020 provided a window to the India of the future. Experts from around the country and the world engaged with and debated these very significant development and policy challenges that India faces in the coming decade.

ThePrint India was the digital partner for the event.
