Since when the former vice president of the US Joe Biden has won the president-elect vote and has been elected as the current president of the US, he has been working towards improving the economic dynamics of the country inadvertently. From entering into the Paris pact again to hinting at hiring Indian Americans as his office bearers, he is showing the prowess to be called the “first man” of the world’s top developed country.
Biden targets powerful association with less powerful countries
Biden has shown an active interest in changing “destructive US policies’ ‘ against the less powerful countries. He is likely to bring reform on policies with countries like Iran, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. When he was the vice president under Barack Obama, they eventually pulled out of “war-like” situations with Taliban and Afghanistan terrorism acts. They dealt with the issue very maturely and had maintained believing a no-tolerance for terrorism act. Now that Joe Biden has come into power after winning the electoral vote, his move towards making a strong association with these countries is worth witnessing.
Neera Tanden is expected to be hired as the new budget chief
Not only did he choose Kamala Harris, an Indian-origin woman as his vice-president-elect candidate, but Joe Biden also approved many Indian Americans as part of his white house team members. He is currently on the verge of nominating Neera Tanden, an Indian origin American as the director of the office of management and budget. In the times of the economic crisis that the world (and the US) is suffering, it is evident that the Biden-led authorities would have a tough time in controlling the crisis. But hopes are high that they will get through the challenges and emerge a winner.
What India can expect with this new found love from the US president Joe Biden
If Biden keeps moving towards India with open arms, then we can benefit a lot from this Indo-US growing friendship. Many Indian Americans will get employment under his reign. The visa clearance for Indians will be smoother, trade relations will improve, and religious freedom and democracy will also be at its best. In 2013, when Joe Biden visited India, he said, “We admire the way you’ve melded ethnicities, faiths, and tongues into a single, proud nation” that has instilled hope in us that he would make a friendly bond with India. Now, that he has been selected as the president of the US, hopes are high that he will strengthen the bond with us.
The Policy Times suggestion
- As the US president shows interest in strengthening relations with India, our government must also lend a hand of friendship towards them. Trade and commerce associations must also improve.
- There are some pending pacts between India and the US that need to be solved now. Like the international religious freedom issue and other similar issues that the former president Trump ignored the most.
