“Simply put, our countries are taking innovation and cooperation to a new level in our relationship, and thanks in large part to the folks around this table,” he remarked at a Prime Minister Modi-attended event.
“The Prime Minister and I can commit to building around them, over them, and through them,” Biden said of technology collaboration speed obstacles. Because it matters—our collaboration matters—not only to our people but, I think, to the whole globe. Our cooperation is about more than the next breakthrough or contract, he remarked.
