New Delhi : Against the backdrop of the US President Barack Obama’s visit to India on the occasion of Republic Day, Network 18 in association with The Observer Research Foundation (ORF) brings together notable dignitaries from our two great democracies on one platform. The aim of this endeavour is to discuss shared challenges and common goals in an effort to chart a blueprint for an ambitious & constructive India – U.S. strategic partnership.



This is a historic moment in bi-lateral relations between the two countries as President Obama is not only the first sitting president to visit India for the second time but also the first to attend the festivities of Republic Day as Chief Guest. In this context, The India-US Dialogues aims to mirror this emerging dynamism in our relations.  



The initiative will see some of the most respected names from both sides examining key areas that are pivotal in this partnership. Topics ranging from Trade and Business, Regional Security Challenges, Energy Security and Sustainable Development, to Defence and Technology Cooperation will be deliberated upon in separate panel discussions. At the same time, the expert panel will also ideate out-of-the-box solutions for the two governments to consider, providing the audience with informed, in-depth analysis of the issues at hand.



The US is represented by thought leaders who have either worked in the administration or are a guiding force in the US rebalance to Asia, with a central role for India. The Indian side is being represented by key ministers tasked with shaping the next big leap in Indo-US ties. The business side is duly represented by heavyweights from both sides.



Policy makers and thought leaders in attendance would include Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Communications and Information Technology; Prakash Javadekar, Minister of Environment, Forests and Climate Change; Suresh Prabhu, Union Minister of Railways; Ram Madhav, General Secretary, BJP; Jayant Sinha, Minister of State for Finance; Vikram Singh, Former Assistant Secretary Defence; Phil Shaw, CEO, Lockheed Martin India; Tom Cutler, President, Cutler International LLC; Diane Farrell, President US-India Business Council and Anand Mahindra, Chairman & Managing Director, Mahindra Group.



The full day event will be hosted on Sunday, January 25 at ‘The Oberoi’, New Delhi with a curtain raiser, held a day prior on Saturday, January 24 at 8 PM. The event will also be telecast across the leading news channels of Network18 channels including CNN-IBN, CNBC-TV18, IBN7, CNBC Awaaz, IBN Lokmat and News18.



Talking about the initiative, Umesh Upadhyay, President, News, Network 18 Group said, “We at Network18 take immense pride in announcing The India-US Dialogues in light of President Obama’s visit to India. Marking this prestigious occasion, this conclave aims to give our viewers an in-depth analysis of the relationship between India and the United States and set the agenda for taking it to the next level.”



Sunjoy Joshi, Director, Observer Research Foundation said, “This Republic Day will be historic for India-US ties. Keeping the same in mind and our objective to build partnerships for a Global India, this forum, in the presence of eminent personalities, will bring forth discussions and solutions that will help the two nations to further cultivate their relations and get together on the path of growth for all.’
