U.S.-India Defense Relations
The India Chair's defense work is focused on bolstering U.S.-India defense ties by promoting U.S.-India defense trade, U.S.-India defense collaboration, and operationalization of the Quad workstreams
Few areas of U.S.-India relations have seen as much recent progress as the defense relationship. Over the last two decades the U.S. has become a significant supplier of defense equipment to India, become India’s largest military exercise partner, taken steps to improve inter-operability and coordination, and signed technical agreements to further expand India’s access to high-end American defense technology.
Beyond bilateral cooperation, the United States and India are key partners in “The Quad,” an emerging strategic partnership between the governments of India, Japan, Australia, and the United States.
