"By 2030, India is projected to have the largest population of any country in the world and the third-largest economy. During the past decade, the United States and India have developed a valued global partnership, and President Obama aims to make the next decade even more transformative," US National Security Adviser Susan Rice said on Wednesday.

From the "Look East" policy to India's contributions to maritime security and its expanding involvement in regional organisations, India has much to offer to Asia and the world, Rice said in her address on 'America’s Future in Asia' at the prestigious Georgetown University.

"Together, our nations launched a new clean energy partnership mobilizing billions of dollars in public and private investment for solar, wind and alternative energy projects in India," she said.

Rice said the two governments of India and the United States have joined with private sector partners in both countries to launch a USD 2 billion infrastructure debt fund, the first of hopefully many future funds meant to attract financing for Indian infrastructure projects.

"We look forward to deepening our cooperation across the broad spectrum of our relationship," she added.
