‘Howdy Modi’ – The new chapter of Indo American friendship! The friendship is expected to be taken to the next level. A trade deal is expected to be signed at the United Nations General Assembly in New York. The deal under discussion is likely to benefit both countries since there have been a lot of speculations regarding certain tariffs on US produce and restore preferential treatment for a variety of Indian exports to the United States.
The event in Houston was a Grand Spectacle to watch with over 50,000 guests. The cultural programs stole the show with the focus being the Indo American cooperation.
In recent times, President Donald Trump of the United States expressed concern regarding the 50% duty on Harley Davidson Motorcycle spares leading to a steady decline in sales volumes. The other areas of cooperation could extend beyond business especially with the recent finalization of defense deals like the Apache Helicopters.
US has also expressed concern over the recent standoff between India and Pakistan over the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.
