Whether in countering terrorism or in ensuring a peaceful and prosperous Indo-Pacific, India and the US have unprecedented convergence of interests. It is a strategic partnership based on shared values and geared towards the 21st century. 

AIR correspondent reports that the US is India’s largest trading partner in goods and services combined. Relationship with the US has evolved into one of India's most consequential relationships today.
