Miller Coauthors Column on U.S.-India Trade Relationship

Manjari Chatterjee Miller currently a Senior Fellow at the  Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and on leave from Boston University’s Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies where she is an Associate Professor of International Relations – published a column in Hindustan Times on the importance of the United StatesIndia trade relationship. 

Miller coauthored the article, titled “Boosting trade, the key to stronger Indo-US ties,” with CFR Fellow for Trade Policy Inu Manak. In their piece, the authors argue that India and the U.S. should strengthen its economic cooperation through formal channels – the U.S.-India Trade Policy Forum (TPF) and Indo-Pacific Economic Framework for example – and reduce barriers preventing trade such as tariffs. The two claim that “without solid trade mechanisms in place as anchors, the foundation of the US-India partnership will remain brittle,” which does not fully serve either of the world’s largest democracies well.

The full article can be read on the Hindustan Times’ website.
