First U.S.-India Strategic and Commercial Dialogue, 2015

On September 21-22, 2015 the State Department hosted the inaugural U.S.-India Strategic and Commercial Dialogue (S&CD). Secretary Kerry and Commerce Secretary Pritzker were joined by their respective Indian co-chairs, along with members of the U.S. delegation and their Indian counterparts.

The U.S.-India Strategic Dialogue has been the primary forum to advance shared objectives in regional security, economic cooperation, defense, trade, and climate challenges since 2009. In January 2015, President Obama and Prime Minister Modi elevated the U.S.-India Strategic Dialogue to the Strategic and Commercial Dialogue, reflecting the United States and India’s shared priorities of generating economic growth, creating jobs, improving the investment climate, and strengthening the middle class in both countries. The inaugural S&CD is an opportunity for the United States and India to further strengthen their partnership to meet the challenges of the coming decades, from climate change to regional security, and to deepen the economic and commercial ties between our two countries.
