India-US 2015: Partnering for
Peace and Prosperity
US President Barack Obama's visit to New Delhi in January reinvigorated the relationship between India and the United States. In addition to announcing initiatives for greater trade, investment, and economic partnership, the two sides broke an impasse over the civil nuclear deal and renewed the defense framework agreement.
Building off this momentum, the Atlantic Council's South Asia Center, in collaboration with the US Embassy in New Delhi, Vivekananda International Foundation, and the Confederation of Indian Industry is hosting the "India-US 2015: Partnering for Peace and Prosperity" conference in New Delhi on March 16 and 17. The conference will create an opportunity for US and Indian officials and leaders from diverse fields to have candid conversations, take stock of the bilateral relationship, and seek out new ideas for cooperation.
This conference will facilitate a dialogue on regional as well as global security issues. It will also assess India-US trade and the importance of economics to the security relationship.
Invited speakers include Ajit Doval, National Security Advisor of India; Peter Lavoy, former US Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for Asian and Pacific Security Affairs; Ashley Tellis, Senior Associate, South Asia Program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Kanwal Sibal, former Foreign Secretary of India; representatives from India's ministries of Defense and External Affairs; and former ambassadors.
