Developing the U.S.-India Economic Relationship

Recorded on October 18, 2006

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The U.S.-India relationship is expanding on a number of fronts as the two countries work together on issues of common interest and seek a strategic partnership for the twenty-first century. While U.S.-India trade and investment ties are growing, there is wide scope for broader economic engagement and business cooperation to provide ballast to the deepening strategic relationship. India's former Minister for Disinvestment Arun Shourie will provide his thoughts on the important topic of building U.S.-India economic ties. Arun Shourie is a former Union Minister of the Government of India and presently a sitting member of the Upper House of the Indian Parliament (Rajya Sabha). From 1999-2004, Dr. Shourie held several significant ministerial portfolios. As the Minister of Disinvestment, he undertook the difficult task of privatizing a number of public sector companies and is well known as the privatization czar of India.
