The Trump administration would be good for India as Washington sees New Delhi as a stabilising factor in the region, a top US industry body has said. “I think US needs India for its presence in the region itself,” Mukesh Aghi, president of US India Business Council, a representative body of top American businesses having a footprint in India, told PTI.
Noting that geopolitically as India sits in a very turmoil arena, New Delhi needs Washington more. “We feel that from the Indo-US relationship perspective, Trump administration will be good for India,” Aghi said, adding that two principles could drive Indo-US relationship.
“First, this administration sees that the economic prosperity of India is good for America. Second, it also sees the military growth of India as a stabilising factor in the region itself,” he said.
“We believe that India wants to see the US as a strong nation, sending a strong message out there because at this stage while India is trying to grow economically you do not want too much disruption in global order. We feel that the ties between the Trump administration and Modi government will be positive and much more deeper also,” Aghi said.
