What a Joe Biden administration will mean for India
NEW DELHI: Joe Biden is a familiar figure in India as he was Barack Obama’s vice-president for two terms. There will be some areas where he will follow Trump regarding India, and others where he would diverge.
Defence, strategic and security relations will likely follow a path that has remained largely the same since 2000, but there is a divide in the Biden camp about its approach to China, which could have implications for India
India and the US will have trade problems regardless of who occupies the White House. H-1B visas are unlikely to return to the way they used to be. However, a Biden administration could also bring up human rights violations in India, accusations of majoritarianism and Kashmir, which could gather traction in a Democrat-heavy Congress.
