Over the past two decades, India has grown to become the world’s largest democracy and one of the world’s leading economies, lifting millions out of poverty. Yet one-third of its population still lives on less than $1.25 per day. Projected to become the world’s most populous country by 2030, India faces tremendous energy, education, health, water and sanitation challenges. India is an important U.S. partner in maintaining regional stability, deepening trade ties and addressing development challenges in India and globally.
Leveraging India’s growing financial and human resources, the U.S.-India partnership is harnessing the strengths and capabilities of both countries to tackle development challenges not only in India, but worldwide. This approach to development is built on leveraging the expertise, innovations and resources of the United States and India to tackle the most pressing challenges of our day, from infectious diseases to food security and climate change.
