The five pillars that MM Singh will uphold

While searching the net to know the significance of MM Singh’s US visit, I landed on this page and the supposed five-pillars.

1.Strategic cooperation that includes arms sales, joint military exercises and cooperation in combating maritime piracy off the coast of Somalia. (American companies are competing for contracts worth up to $18bn)

2. Energy and climate change(India currently emits about 4% of the world’s greenhouse gases)

3.Economics, trade and agriculture.(Two-way trade with India was about $5 bn -1990, rose to $14 bn-200,nearly $50 bn-2008, according to U.S. trade statistics.)
4.Cooperation in education (higher education sector will open up to greater foreign investment)

5.Cooperation in science and technology($30 million science and technology endowment to be used for joint r&d, innovation, and commercialization.)

Hopefully we shall also hear MM Singh say that Pakistan needs to stop exporting terror etc..

Ireally do not know much about details of the programmes/projects that you have mentioned.
I only know one fact--i.e whatever is in the interest of America will be of importance to them.Rest all will be discussion tables for the benefit of politics on either side.

BKC: nd the ones mentioned above interests the Amercians because it is pure business for them....

as for the rest, ie Pakistan and terror and China's interest in solving Pakistan's problems (Kashmir) will be as you said on discussion tables for the benefit of politics on both side...

This is the first time I have seen Manmohan Singh being called MM Singh!

I wonder what has happened to the real pillar - the Nuclear Deal!
