US-India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF) and our members appreciate the efforts by leaders across the U.S. government at the highest level to identify concrete steps the United States can take to assist India through this crisis. We look forward to announcements soon that will support India’s efforts to fill needs like oxygen, medicines, medical supplies, and vaccines. This should include a waiver of current restrictions on the export of vaccine raw materials to ensure production of vaccine in India can continue uninterrupted. USISPF and our members stand ready to support assistance efforts of the US government at this critical time.
Already, USISPF and members are working on several fronts to assist citizens of India:
“Fighting the pandemic effectively will require concerted action on all fronts. At this time, the need is enormous, and all resources have to be pooled,” said USISPF President and CEO, Mukesh Aghi. “We are working closely with the Government of India to ensure seamless movement of critical equipment and supplies. USISPF will be soon setting up a dedicated web portal to centralize the efforts of individuals and other companies.”
