iCET: US, India must stay at tech forefront, says Ajit Doval

India and the US have got to remain at the forefront of technology in case “we need to protect and defend our value systems and it is part of a larger strategic interest”, said Ajit Doval, National Security Advisor on Tuesday, in presence of his American counterpart Jake Sullivan.

Both NSAs attended the Initiative for Critical and Emerging Technology (iCET) Industry Roundtable organised by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) here. Addressing the meeting, Sullivan noted three important buckets for technology partnerships: the first being innovation, the second as production, and the third being deployment.

Doval highlighted the role of industry in technology and the progress of iCET since its inception. He stated, “iCET has achieved more than we could imagine.” Doval also highlighted the progress made across the defence innovation roadmap and start-ups, and emphasised the importance of the semiconductor industry.

Sullivan highlighted the importance of innovation and emphasised the need for government support for the private sector. He remarked that there exists bipartisan support for Indian industry in the US. He further added that building the ecosystem and supply chain manufacturing is the key to production.

Sullivan said the core of iCET is about the idea of India and the US being able to support each other and to encourage greater collaboration in the technology ecosystem, jointly innovate and find solutions to challenges.

The (iCET, launched in January 2023, represents a landmark agreement between the two countries on emerging technologies such as AI, semiconductors, biotech, and defence innovation. iCET is a significant development in the India-US relationship, as it elevates the two countries’ strategic partnership to new heights.
