The traditionally strong bilateral relations enjoyed by India & UAE received impetus with the visit of Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Sh. Narendra Modi to UAE in August 2015. This visit marked the beginning of a new strategic partnership between the two countries. His Royal Highness, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of UAE Armed Forces, visited India in February 2016. His Royal Highness visited India again in January, 2017 as the Chief Guest at India’s Republic day celebrations. It was during this visit that the bilateral relations were upgraded to a ‘Comprehensive Strategic Partnership’.

    • 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 5th largest investor in India, having invested $30.4 bn between April 2000 and June 2020. This represents 6.4% of the total FDI into India during this period.

    • Imports from the US to India from April 2019 to February 2020 were valued at $33.6 bn and exports were valued at $49.4 bn.

    • US energy exports are an important area of growth in the trade relationship. In 2018 India purchased 48.2 million barrels of US crude oil, a significant increase from 9.6 million in 2017.

    • 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.

    • With two Indian Americans occupying high-level posts of Governor and several representatives of the people, the Indian diaspora has assimilated into their adopted country and is acting as a catalyst to forge closer and stronger ties between India and the US.

    • 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.
