With AUKUS formed, if this summit of QUAD doesn't mention China (which it hasn't till now surprisingly) or some military cooperation, it will be surprising if India continues with QUAD.
China jaye bhad me abhi to bas apna Binnas (Business) ka fayada nikalo QUAD se. Vaccines aur Trade deals etc sign karna chahiye jaldi jaldi.

The PM will meet Qualcomm CEO Cristiano R Amon. Cristiano Amon is the president and CEO of Qualcomm Incorporated, a multinational firm that develops semiconductors, software, and wireless technology-related services.

Should we expect to see Qualcomm investing big dollars in India's semi-conductor program?

How much rare earth metal reserve do we have in India?

QUAD for business doesn't make sense as there isn't much shared interest in business. As far as India is concerned we have decent buisness relations with Japan and US (not aware about Australia). Regarding vaccines, a few days back there were reports of DC pressurising Delhi to start vaccines supply by next month, so if that is the case India should be well aware that our requirements aren't comprised.

India doesn't lose anything by staying in Quad, there is only to gain(Ruskies getting pissed off can be managed by T14/ Ka 226 orders). Also, gives an excuse to host yearlong military/ navy presence in the Indian Ocean in the name of "exercises"- keeps the batmunchers at bay.

And for semiconductors and renewables, raw material isn't the choking point, its the technology. Raw material is found in abundance in the Americas (both north and south- Bolivia contributes 17% of global lithium reserves alone, US estimated about 11%), Australia, and some parts of India (not much exploration has been done).

And once, 60-70% of the population is vaccinated, it's not a bad idea to start exporting vaccines. Chinks have made a fortune out of it by charging as high as 20$ for their fairly inferior vaccines.

Why mention anyone the Chinese will know if it's against them just keep your head down and discuss economic cooperation and technology

Isn't QUAD also for moving the supply chains outside of China there is enough business reasons for us and japan to divert their supply chains atleast partially to India

Trade is in far too much favour of China wrt to India and other QUAD nations, moving supply chains out of it will take a few decades to say the least and all this while, QUAD nations will see changes in government/parties, whereas CCP will remain at the helm of affairs in China with a fixed goal. Btw we did take some actions against chinese imports after Galwan, what happened about that, has there been a cost for china or not?

We aren't even their largest trading partner so it didn't really do anything besides getting some points for nationalism

IMO even china knows, QUAD isn't something very serious as of now, statements from GT and their FO are something which can allow them (in future) to go more aggressive on the LAC, SCS, ECS.

Interesting this tour is coinciding with Agni 5 test.
They are going to pressure them to cancel it. We'll see if he caves. I'll be impressed if it doesn't. But if he does, I think it's time for Yogi to step up in 2024. Also Kamala might pressure him to "de Hindutva-ize" the BJP to throw a bone to the woke crowd, something to watch for as well.

Other than that they will probably talk about Afghanistan, where Modi will try to explain again how Pak was primarily behind Taliban resurgence, only to be ignored as usual.
