As President Barack Obama is on an India visit, it’s worth putting the India-US relationship in perspective and consider how far it has come in recent years. Fifteen years ago, there were US sanctions on India. More recently, the Obama administration has said the US relationship with India “will be one of the defining partnerships of the 21st century.” Indian Prime Minister Modi has asserted that “India and the US have a fundamental stake in each other’s success—for the sake of our values and our many shared interests.” These charts and graphics show that the relationship has changed in other ways as well, including the areas of high-level India-US engagement, economic and defence ties, people-to-people connections amongst Indians and Americans, and future opportunities to increase bilateral cooperation.
