Unleashing U.S.-India Defense Trade

By Richard Fontaine

In this U.S.-India Initiative Series working paper, authors Kenneth I. Juster and Ajay Kuntamukkala examine the complex web of export controls and other issues surrounding bilateral defense trade between the United States and India and offer concrete recommendations to both Washington and New Delhi for deepening the relationship in this critical area.

This paper is one of a series commissioned in conjunction with a major Center for a New American Security study on the future of the U.S.-India relationship. The study, co-chaired by former Deputy Secretary of State Richard L. Armitage and former Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs R. Nicholas Burns, and directed by CNAS Senior Fellow Richard Fontaine, has produced a comprehensive blueprint for the next phase of the U.S.-India strategic relationship, Natural Allies: A Blueprint for the Future of U.S.-India Relations.
