Washington, April 13: The main American think tank on science and technology (IT) policy says that America wants to stop the emerging China and there is no other country in India that has highly skilled technical professionals and so on. Which has strong political and cultural ties with America. The think tank ‘Information Technology and Innovation Foundation’ (ITIF) said this in a report released on Monday. He also warned the United States of being “highly dependent” on India if it created major differences between the two countries on matters such as intellectual property, data handling, fees, taxes, local content requirements or personal privacy. If it happens, IC service provider India can become a strategic problem. The report looks at the worst and best scenarios. The report said that one scenario is to reduce tensions between India and China and strengthen business relations between the two neighboring countries. In such a situation, the global economy will shift towards the east and the US will not be able to do anything special about it.
According to the report, the second scenario is that between China and India, the interests of India and America should be equal, due to increasing challenges related to economic, military and international relations. In such a situation, democratic rules will be maintained in most developed countries, because developing countries will look at the ‘Delhi model’ rather than the ‘Beijing model’. The think tank said, “America wants to stop the emerging China and as such, there is no other important country than India, which is very large in size, has highly skilled technical professionals and has strong political and cultural ties with America.” ITIF member and co-author of the report, David Moshela, said that the forces which are increasing differences between the US and China, are bringing the US and India closer.
