India is one of the world’s fastest growing economies — and is now the world’s second-most populous country with over one billion people. India is also a nuclear power and has a large military force, using its economic and political clout to expand its influence around the world. Yet India still struggles with poverty and other challenges of a developing economy. India is also the largest and most diverse democracy, yet hesitates to promote these values abroad. In this presentation, we will look at the geopolitical position of India to better understand their ambitions and their role in the IndoPacific, and on the world stage, ambitions that are still debated among India’s own leaders. We will also examine the India-American bilateral cooperation and assess the future of India-American relations. Join us for this far-reaching presentation focused on this complex nation filled with contradictions. Kindly sponsored by Anthology of Farmington Hills.
