Biden indicated to continue traditional policies on defense-economic front
New administration will increase interference in global affairs, China will remain on target
America has been identified as a nation that has demonstrated its dominance over the world for decades, but outgoing President Donald Trump emphasized more on domestic policies. As a result, in the last four years, American influence on the world stage seemed to decrease. Unlike Trump, the new President Joe Biden favors reinvigorating the US role in global affairs.
For this reason, appointments to the Biden administration team were aimed at restoring the linkage with WHO and UNESCO with globalization, the Paris Climate Agreement, international trade treaties and NATO agreements, and restoring military intervention in the troubled areas. is. With the return of the US to traditional world policy, there are many new opportunities for India.
Indo-Americans will benefit
The Biden administration indicated on Tuesday that it was introducing a new citizenship policy. This allows foreign nationals to live in the United States after eight years of residence, which is 1.2 percent of its total population. The new policy can benefit those 1.25 million and Indians who are in America without valid papers. Under this policy, 1.10 crore people are expected to get citizenship, of which about five percent will be Indians.
More visas for Indians
Biden made it clear during the election campaign that he would keep the doors of America open to global talent. The restrictions and limitations imposed by the Trump administration on H-1B visas blocked the way for the Indian youth. The new administration will help to recruit a large number of IT and software engineers from India.
Will meet China with common interests
Nominated Defense Minister Lloyd Austin clarified the Biden administration’s view of China, claiming that China was dreaming of becoming the world’s dominant power. In four years, in the epidemic and worsening economic conditions, the world saw America getting weaker and China growing. Combating China has become a burden for the US, to share it, it needs an ally who has common interests. He can see this ally in India, but we have to take steps as usual because of America’s self-styled policies.
Quad’s role will increase on defense front
Austin announced increasing defense cooperation with India, hinting that India could create new opportunities in the Biden administration to strengthen the defense front. At the time of the trump, the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad) of the US, Japan, India and Australia created a new axis. Biden is known to carry on the work of the predecessor, so the quad may look more active in the future.
Business cooperation time demand
During the Trump era, the US effort was to bring its dairy, agricultural products and medical equipment to the Indian market, which India put a lot of effort to stop because of its interests. It was also considered as a reason for not having a business deal with PM Modi. It will be challenging for the Biden administration to establish a new business relationship, keeping Modi’s self-reliant India, but here too the China Factor can encourage both to increase cooperation.
