Number of hurdles remain in Indo-US ties: Feigenbaum
Washington: Noting that Indo-US relationship continues to move on an upward trajectory, a former Bush Administration official has said that there remain a number of hurdles to build it a more enduring, strategic and global partnership.
"A number of hurdles remain before the United States and India can build a more enduring, strategic, and global partnership," said Evan A Feigenbaum, in an article "India’s Rise, America’s Interest: The Fate of the US-Indian Partnership" published in the latest issue of the prestigious Foreign Policy magazine.
First, India needs to bolster its emergence as a major power?not least by sustaining high rates of economic growth, said Feigenbaum, who served as the Deputy Assistant
Secretary of State for South Asia during the previous Bush Administration.
This will require India to further open its economy to competition and investment and advance ongoing reforms aimed at relieving inequality, expanding the middle class, and
strengthening the country’s physical infrastructure, he said in his 16-page article.
Second, India’s emerging global influence will be sustainable only if India develops new doctrines and diplomatic capacities.
"The country has moved beyond nonalignment, to be sure, but has not yet coalesced around a new foreign policy vision," he said.
