From H1B Visas to China, What Does Biden-Harris Admin Mean for India?

As Joe Biden and Kamala Harris got confirmed as the President-elect and the Vice-President elect of the United States of America on 7 November, thousands and thousands of kilometers away, India has also been closely watching the election results.

Beyond India-US ties, the Indian diaspora both in the US and in the homeland has been quite heavily invested in this election owing to Kamala Harris' candidacy especially. They have been rooting for Harris — the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother, but now that Biden-Harris will be replacing the Trump-Pence admin in the White House, the question is what will this new US presidency bring for India?

Now the geniality between Trump and Modi — both right wing leaders — had extended to the point where Modi not only featured in Trump's campaign, but also became one of the only foreign leaders to be holding big rallies like the Howdy Modi event in Houston.

While it's too early to tell how much the Modi government has to gain or lose from the Biden-Harris presidency, what can be expected from the Biden admin's foreign policy vision for India? Tune in!
