Press Release:GK_Siebert_Visits_Think_Tank_1_Bild.jpg

Gateway House: Indian Council on Global Relations is a foreign policy think tank in Mumbai. It was established to engage India’s leading corporations and individuals in debates and scholarships on India’s foreign policy and the nation’s role in global affairs. It is a membership-based, independent, non-partisan and not-for-profit organization. One of our main endeavours is to create an ecosystem for discussion and debate on issues relevant to India and the world. Thus, partnering with Oxford University Press to publish Nish Acharya’s ideas on the economic potential of an India-US partnership fits well in this goal. Through this partnership, Gateway House’s scholarly literature on geopolitics and geoeconomics will be available as a source of knowledge to a global audience.

Oxford University Press (OUP) is the world’s largest university press with the widest global presence. OUP’s global academic publishing program spans the entire academic and higher education spectrum, including a wide array of scholarly and general interest books, journals, and online products. Their mission is to support Oxford University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education. As a press, they take pride in this mission, which allows them to enable, support, and facilitate research and scholarship. OUP authors range from classic thinkers to modern masters, including twentieth-century Nobel Prize winners, and come from across the globe.

OUP brings together leading scholars to address contemporary political issues. Published and developed in partnership with the world’s most prestigious learned societies, they are also proud to publish leading journals in the area.

The India – US partnership by Nish Acharya is the first book in the series. The story of USA India relations is one of unfulfilled potential. Despite their common commitment to democracy, diversity, and free markets, their short- and long-term objectives do not align in a way that would create a robust economic and political partnership. These two nations, which will soon be the second and the third largest economies in the world, must find ways to increase their economic integration over the next 15 years a through building institutional capacity, creating a startup culture, and using India’s talent pool to resolve complex problems.

Engaging the question of bilateral partnership from the perspectives of investment, public policy, and philanthropy, Acharya delves into ways in which India can approach the goal of $1 trillion worth of economic ties with the US by 2030. Backed by 62 interviews of leaders from business, government, civil society, and the academia and 16 case studies on the growing impact of American organizations on the Indian economy, this study highlights organizations that are inspirational models for their sectors and are aiming at realizing a trillion-dollar, long-term economic partnership between India and America.
