India - US bilateral relations have developed into a Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership, based on shared democratic values and increasing convergence of interests on bilateral, regional, and global issues.

The bilateral cooperation between the two nations is broad-based and multi-sectoral, covering trade and investment, defence and security, education, science and technology, cybersecurity, high-technology, civil nuclear energy, space technology and applications, clean energy, environment, agriculture and health. This strong cooperation between the two countries is evident as US is one of the top FDI contributors. There was 44% increase recorded in FDI equity inflow from the US during the FY 2020-21 compared to FY 2019-20.

    • India - US Ministerial 2+2 Dialogue was launched to provide a positive, forward-looking vision for the India - US strategic partnership and to promote synergy in their diplomatic and security efforts.

    • India - US Commercial Dialogue is set up to discuss trade and commerce relations and identify areas for closer collaboration between the two countries. The corresponding CEO Forum focuses on investments and business issues to promote a mutually beneficial business environment.

    • US - India State Spotlight Webinar Series was launched to raise industry awareness of key economic policy developments in both countries and gather feedback from stakeholders. The objective is to disseminate information on the regulations for Doing Business to the Private Sectors of both countries.

    • During the third India - US Ministerial 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue, 5 agreements were signed including Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA) between the respective defence ministries and an agreement for Electronic Exchange of Customs Data between the Postal Operators. Other MoUs and agreements for cooperation in the energy healthcare sectors were signed.

    • The US is the 3rd largest investor in India, having invested $45.55 bn between April 2000 and June 2021. This represents 8.3% of the total FDI into India during this period.

    • Imports from the US to India from April 2019 to March 2020 were valued at $35.8 bn and exports were valued at $53 bn.

    • US energy exports are an important area of growth in the trade relationship. India started importing crude and LNG from the U.S. from 2017 and 2018 respectively. Bilateral hydrocarbon trade reached US$ 9.2 billion during 2019-20, a 93% increase since 2017-18.

    • The 3.5 mn plus strong Indian American community is an important ethnic group in the US, accounting for about 1% of the total population in the country. Indian American community includes a large number of professionals, business entrepreneurs, and educationalists with increasing influence in society.

    • The number of Indians and Indian Americans in the U.S. is estimated at over 4 million. It includes a large number of professionals, entrepreneurs and educationists with considerable and increasing influence in U.S. polity, economy and the society. They are a big stakeholder in India-U.S. relations having significantly contributed to the growth and development of the U.S. economy and fostering people to-people ties.

    • The total number of Indian students in the United States has more than doubled over the last decade, from 81,000 in 2008 to a record high of 196,000 in 2018. Last year, Indian students enrolled at U.S. colleges and universities contributed over $8 billion to the U.S. economy.
