Book Excerpt


In his book, “The India-US Partnership; $1 Trillion By 2030”, Nish Acharya makes the case that the
bilateral relationship between the United States and India should target $1 trillion, rather than
$500 billion because of the size of the two economies and the scope for collaboration on areas
​like defense, energy, startups, technology and next-generation innovation.
