Host: American Enterprise Institute. Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh’s trip to Washington could not come at a more opportune time. The United States is at an important crossroads in Afghanistan and Asia, and India’s policies could play a key role in promoting security and stability in the region. In addition, U.S.-India cooperation is essential to moving forward on many other issues of global importance such as climate change and energy policy. Will strengthening relations between the world’s two largest democracies be recognized as a top priority by both Washington and New Delhi? How should the United States and India cooperate to better meet security demands in South Asia, especially with respect to Afghanistan, Pakistan, and China? What direction should the U.S.-India strategic partnership take on global issues such as climate change and energy policy? These and other questions will be discussed at this AEI event by government, academic, and industry experts who will offer their thoughts on the upcoming meeting between President Obama and Prime Minister Singh and the relationship between the two countries.
