Donald Trump’s presidency – Impact on India

trump

Negative impact :-

  • Donald Trump is proposing to tighten H-1B visa regulations. If that is implemented, many Indians who are working in US will return to India. That will effect Indian economy negatively. Providing employment opportunities to all of them immediately in India is a difficult task.
  • 60% of India’s IT exports are to US markets. With the ‘Buy American, Hire American’ policy of Donald Trump, India’s IT sector will suffer. Donald Trump’s decisions are causing a drop of stock prices for some companies.
  • Donald Trump’s continuous decisions against immigrants made many Indian doctors in US uncertain about their future there.

Positive impact :-

  • If IT & Medical professionals return to India, Modi’s dream of brain gain will become true. India’s development will be faster.
  • ‘Buy American, Hire American’ policy is very costly for many IT industries in US. Indian-based IT industries in US may shift their base to India, which is very beneficial to Indian economy.
  • Defence ties between India & US are expected to remain the same under Donald Trump’s administration.
  • With the increase of talent pool in India, our country can attract more foreign investments.
  • To counter China, Trump may support India in many issues including in India’s NSG bid.

  1. It was purely an Election gimmick. Donald trump knows it well that Indian IT professionals are much more competent and productive.

  2. Less Foreign reserves: If Indians will not be able to get the job in US, then it will affect the foreign reserves in the country which is not good for the country.
    Less FDI from America: As Trump has announced Buy American Hire Americans India will get less FDIs from the United States.
