•    US to help in digitalising Jan Dhan accounts
•    US to partner India in solar energy and sustainable energy solutions
•    US to earmark 4 billion US dollars in investment and lending deals to India
•    Exim Bank of US to commit 1 billion US dollars for project financing  
•    The Overseas Private Investment Corporation will lend 1 billion US dollars to small- and medium-sized enterprises in underserved rural areas of India
•    Another 2 billion US dollars will be committed by the U.S. Trade and Development Agency for renewable energy
•    India assured U.S. investors of a transparent and predictable business environment and tax regime, protection for their intellectual property

Bilateral trade between the two countries had increased 60 percent in the past couple of years to a record 100 billion US dollars, but India’s exports to the U.S. were still less than 2 percent of all American imports.

The new vigour found will help both the countries increase the share of bilateral trade in the world trade.
