In the recent US-India 2+2 dialogue, US Ambassador to India, Eric Garcetti, shed light on the burgeoning collaboration between the two nations. The discussions centered around elevating science and technology partnerships to harness innovations for the global good. Garcetti highlighted the pivotal role of the US-India Initiative on Critical and Emerging Technology (iCET), which has been making strides at a remarkable pace.

Driving Global Progress Through Technology

The dialogue emphasized the commitment to technology that unites rather than divides. Efforts under iCET are witnessing unprecedented momentum, with significant investments from US private sector companies and government-to-government dialogues. The focus extends to key sectors such as space, defense co-production, and planetary defense.

Silence on Cross-Border Terrorism

Curiously absent from the joint statement was any mention of Pakistan and cross-border terrorism. When quizzed about it, Garcetti shrugged, saying, “I wish I knew. Definitely wasn’t a shrug-off for the Americans, though.” The omission raises eyebrows and stirs speculation on the intricacies of diplomatic dance.

Streamlining Visa Processes

Ambassador Garcetti addressed the issue of consular staff and visa processing, acknowledging the need for an expansion. Conversations with the Government of India are underway to streamline visa processes and expedite approvals. The commitment to facilitating smoother interactions between the two nations is evident in this diplomatic effort.

Effective AI Collaboration

In a forward-looking statement, Ambassador Garcetti highlighted the necessity for America and India to deepen their conversations on Artificial Intelligence (AI). Recognizing the transformative potential of AI, he underscored the importance of collaborative efforts in navigating the complexities of this cutting-edge technology.
