How can India get in NSG?

India has done well to get into MTCR and Wassenaar Arrangement.

Next is Australia Group.

NSG will come to us sooner or later but my suggestion is on how NSG can be expedited for India.

Apart from NSG, which the Media is giving space, India is not a member of the APEC, OECD, G7 and remains excluded from the permanent membership of the UN Security Council.

The permanent membership of UNSC would come to us in the end it seems.

However, apart from getting into Australia Group, India should use its good offices with current US Administration, to get into APEC, OECD and G7.

G7

G7

Once we are in Australia group, APEC, OECD and G7, no country worth its name remains which can prevent us from getting into NSG and as a permanent member in UNSC. China be damned!

US will gladly get us into APEC as it has been saying INDO-PACIFIC, than ASIA-PACIFIC. And all economies in this grouping need India to contain China. Modi ji should tell Trump, if you are serious about INDO-PACIFIC, then get us in APEC!

OECD membership gives us great heft in International Economics. West would be happy to let us in, with the fear of China’s economy

G7 membership will stamp it on the world that India is already the 3rd largest economy globally on PPP basis. India is the 5th largest economy in the world in Dollar terms, then what joke is a G7 without India?

Lastly, we should get our global friends to change the consensus method of NSG, thats the way in the grouping
