The East West Center in Washington and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), along with the Senate India Caucus and the House India Caucus, held the launch of India Matters for America/America Matters for India, a publication and web resource for credible and nonpartisan information, graphics, analysis, and news at the national, state, and local levels on US-India interactions.

The launch brought together experts from the US Government, business, and academia to assess how the partnership between the United States and India has moved towards greater cooperation in matters of defense, trade and investment, and educational and people-to-people exchange. Particular emphasis was on how local connections at the state level are shaping the relationship.
