    President Bush’s early March visit to India will turn out to be an historic event. While the agreement for the United States to provide India with advanced civilian nuclear materials and technology has been the focus of concentrated scrutiny, the geopolitical significance of this emerging partnership will help shape events in Asia for the century ahead. With India forecasted to emerge as the world’s most populous nation and an economy that is developing at a rate of over seven percent a year, New Delhi is poised to become an essential ally to the United States for the foreseeable future. When...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - A landmark US deal extending civilian nuclear technology to India could open up 100 billion dollars in energy business ventures for Americans, a top US business group said. US President George W. Bush and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh clinched the deal in New Delhi last week that still requires US Congress approval for implementation. It gives India access to long-denied civilian nuclear technology in return for placing a majority of its nuclear reactors under international inspection. "This agreement could provide the US business community with 100 billion dollars worth of new opportunities in India in the...
  • An evening with the stars, under the stars - Rashtrapati Banquet for President Bush

    An evening with the stars, under the stars Image: Rashtrapati Bhavan, all lit up for the occasion. Rashtrapati Bhavan can overwhelm virtually anyone. The breathtaking view of the dome as one rides up Raisina Hill, a glimpse of the Jaipur column, then the building itself, a majestic monument in two shades of sandstone. When he arrived at the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan on Thursday morning to be accorded the ceremonial welcome India grants visiting heads of State, George Bush was, we guess, unprepared for the pomp and the pageantry that awaited him. Back in July when Prime Minister Manmohan...

    While US President George W Bush was checking into the presidential suite at one of Delhi's top hotels, a group of canines belonging to his security detail were enjoying similar comfort nearby. Some 17 dogs belonging the K-9 squad of the US Secret Service have also been put up at top Delhi five-star hotels, Indian media reports say. Special rooms have apparently been booked in the Sheraton hotel, where Mr Bush is staying, and at the equally plush Le Meridien hotel. The German Shepherds and Labradors are staying in rooms which cost more than $200 a night. Early on Thursday,...

    WASHINGTON, FRIDAY 03: US critics accused President George W Bush on Thursday of selling out weapons non-proliferation goals in order to close a landmark nuclear deal with New Delhi, hardening battle lines as the US Congress prepares to debate its fate. Congress and the 44-nation Nuclear Suppliers Group must both approve the agreement, which would allow India, after three decades of pariah status, access to billions of dollars in US and other foreign atomic technology and fuel to meet its soaring energy needs. Although many US lawmakers favor closer ties with the world's largest democracy, non-proliferation advocates said details that...
  • Bush says outsourcing benefits U.S. in long run-India's growing middle class seen as a key market

    JULIE MASON Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle Washington Bureau NEW DELHI - It's a touchy, politically charged issue and President Bush dove right into it last week, defending outsourcing as a reality of the global market that should be embraced, not feared. "Globalization provides great opportunities," Bush said, although he conceded that "people do lose jobs as a result of globalization, and it's painful for those who lose jobs." Outsourcing is still in its early stages, but nonetheless cuts to the heart of American anxiety about the economy. Bush, who has an MBA from Harvard, takes the long view of what...

    Even as someone who has difficulties with many aspects of President Bush’s policies I found myself on his side last week when the streets of Delhi and Mumbai filled up with the sort of people who oppose him. They were a motley crew. A melange of Marxists, Islamists and well-meaning loonies of activist genre and if they should ever be in a position to create the world of their dreams it would be a totalitarian, Marxist, Islamist theocracy. How scary is that? Give me the US of A any old time. It is a free society as is our own,...

    NEW DELHI: US President George W. Bush has in 48 hours in India won over many a hardened sceptic by pulling off a historic new deal that experts hail for giving India a strategic weight and potential and removing two 'Ps' from the relationship. "There is now no reason for the US and India not to trust each other," Lalit Mansingh, a former ambassador to the US, said, capturing the new comfort level between the hitherto 'estranged democracies'. Mansingh, who was foreign secretary when the India-US rapprochement started and bilateral ties took a turn for the better during Bill Clinton's...

    NEW DELHI - Hindu priests who look after the memorial of Indian independence leader Mohandas Gandhi conducted a purification ceremony at the shrine after a visit from President Bush. But it wasn't the president who offended them, it was the sniffer-dogs who scoured the area ahead of his visit. After the dog visit, the memorial was cleansed with water brought from the Ganges river, which Hindus consider holy, the Hindustan Times newspaper reported Sunday. Bush visited the memorial on Thursday during his three day visit to India. The site, where pacifist icon Gandhi was cremated, is considered sacred and all...

    PRESIDENTIAL NEWS OF THE DAYL President and Mrs. Bush and the presidential party have safely left Pakistan for home after a remarkable 5-day trip to nuclear rivals, India and Pakistan. Using diplomatic finesse his detractors claim is beyond him, the President balanced vists to both countries while achieving a significant civilian nuclear technology treaty with India. As I post this thread, there are no photos of the presidential party arriving home in Washington.

    NEW DELHI, India (CNN) -- Praising India's expanding economy, President Bush warned Friday that fears about job outsourcing to other nations should not prompt the United States to limit global trade. "It's ... important to remember that when someone loses a job it's an incredibly difficult period for the worker and their families," Bush said in a speech in New Delhi. "It's true that some Americans have lost jobs when their companies move their operations overseas," he said. "Some people believe the answer to this problem is to wall off our economy from the world through protectionist policies. I strongly...

Bush and his wife Laura arrived in Hyderabad on a five-hour visit during which he met farmers, scientists and women members of self-help groups at the Acharya NG Ranga Agriculture University and met young entrepreneurs at the Indian School of Business.

    Every president knows the feeling. Troubles, migraines and vexations pile up at home, and it's impossible to resist the temptation to pack up and beat it out of Dodge. This trip was planned before anyone could imagine that recriminations over Katrina, spying on terrorists and outrage over turning U.S. ports over to unsavory foreign managers would converge in misery for the president. But with a fortnight like the one he's had, George W. Bush might well find Afghanistan, Pakistan and even Baghdad more congenial than Washington. He feels particular affinity for Gen. Pervez Musharraf, the president of Pakistan who foiled...

    Bush Defends India Job Outsourcing President George W. Bush on Friday defended job outsourcing to India during a whistlestop tour of an Indian technology city as Muslims clashed with Hindus and police in protests against his visit. Bush's five-hour trip to the southern city of Hyderabad came a day after he sealed a landmark civilian atomic cooperation deal with New Delhi that recognizes India's status as a responsible nuclear power. "People do lose jobs as a result of globalization. And it's painful for those who lose jobs," Bush told an entrepreneur during a discussion at Hyderabad's Indian School of Business....
