Canada may be attracting more Indian students, but the United States still receives more than 100,000 Indians in its institutions of higher learning every year. With that number in mind, the two countries are holding a summit this fall, with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Indian Minister of Human Resource Development Kapil Sibal at the helm, to talk about how to tighten the bond.
From the press release:
“The Summit will explore how government, universities, and business can collaborate to create innovative and sustained higher education partnerships between the United States and India. The two governments also announced an expanded U.S.-India Higher Education Dialogue as a forum for deepening linkages and cooperation. The dialogue will occur annually and will incorporate U.S. and Indian higher education officials and members of the private sector on a rotating basis.”
