The United States is one of our most important strategic partner and during President Obama’s regime, we have taken several steps to widen and deepen this partnership in diverse fields. And during the present visit, we will review the progress that has been
made and also what further can be done to give added meaning and content to this partnership.
The United States is one of India’s most important trading partners, important provider of investment and technology support for India’s development and we need the United States on our side as we move to give new added trust to our development programmes.
We will also review the international situation particularly with reference to international economic situation and other important areas like South East Asia, Middle East and West Asia.
