The Future of India-US Relations

(p.199) Conclusion
India Turns East

Frédéric Grare

Oxford University Press

India’s relationship with the United States remains crucial to its own objectives, but is also ambiguous. The asymmetry of power between the two countries is such that the relationship, if potentially useful, is not necessary for the United States while potentially risky for India. Moreover, the shift of the political centre of gravity of Asia — resulting from the growing rivalry between China and the US — is eroding the foundations of India’s policy in Asia, while prospects for greater economic interaction is limited by India’s slow pace of reforms. The future of India-US relations lies in their capacity to evolve a new quid pro quo in which the US will formulate its expectations in more realistic terms while India would assume a larger share of the burden of Asia’ security.

Keywords:   Asymmetry of power, Asymmetry of expectations, India US relations, China US rivalry, India economic reforms, India security relations, India Asia policy Trans-Pacific Partnership, ASEAN’s centrality
