During his testimony Mr. Puri talked about the following issues pertaining to the US-India partnership that he said is one of the most defining of the 21st century.

 

1. Enhanced education collaboration which can change the dynamics of this relationship

2. STEM teacher exchange which can be a game changer for the U.S.

3. The need to allow exports of natural gas to an energy starved India

4. Why we should look beyond New Delhi to different states in India

 

Elaborating upon the need for educational cooperation he said that “education is the long-term solution which is required for the U.S.-India partnership to thrive.” He also stressed upon the need for not only higher education cooperation, but also teacher/faculty exchange program for STEM teachers at the K12 levels, particularly in rural remote areas. Mr. Puri is working towards these goals under the auspices of AUSIB EduNext, a higher education initiative of the Alliance for US India Business (AUSIB) of which he is the Founder President.

 

Discussing the energy requirements of India he said, “If the U.S. can find a way to have an economically viable and environmentally clear mechanism to export gas to India it would do three things: increase economic opportunity in the U.S. through exports, reduce India’s energy dependence on the Middle East and thirdly build a more strategic relationship with India given the country’s tremendous need for energy independence.”

 

Mr. Puri further called upon the US to engage in direct conversations with Indian States and build strong economic and cultural ties with them as it can help the US get away from the policy paralysis that sometimes affects New Delhi.
