What does President-elect Joe Biden mean for India?


Team Udayavani, Nov 8, 2020, 1:39 PM IST

Democratic candidate Joe Biden flipped three major states and took over Donald Trump to be elected as the 46th US President.

Many Indians wanted Biden to win the US presidential election 2020 because he chose Kamala Harris, an Indian-origin American woman, to be the Vice President of his government.

Earlier, when he was Vice President in the Barack Obama administration, he had advocated a stronger relationship with India

US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi invested heavily in personal relationships with other leaders over the past four years.

Biden claimed that he will reform the H-1B visa system by eliminating the restrictions on employment-based green cards for Indians. As a result, Biden is expected to reverse Trump’s policy that blocked Indian immigration to the US.

According to Zee News, some of his advisors want the new president to take an aggressive approach against China just like Trump but there are many who believe that it is very tough for Biden to disentangle the US and Chinese economies.

Biden’s commitment to the Paris Agreement on climate change could also benefit India, which was hoping for investment from the Green Climate Fund in Indian renewable energy intiatives.

Biden will definitely work closely with India in order to address the issue of terrorism. Biden’s administartion may also continue to put pressure on Pakistan to stop allowing terrorists to use its soil to promote terrorism.
