India might lead the world in every area by 2030, said a former top America's diplomat on Monday. Ex-US diplomat Richard Verma has further said that the country has the youngest workforce in Asia. Along with this, while connecting India with the US, he said that the two largest democracies of the world can do much together.

Verma said, "I look out at the year 2030, for example, and I see an India that may lead the world in almost every category…the most populous nation, the most college graduates, the largest middle-class, the most cell phone and Internet users, along with the third-largest military and third-largest economy, all coexisting in the world's largest democracy, with 600 million people under the age of 25."

Richard Verma addressed a seminar at the Jindal University:

Richard Verma, who was the US Ambassador to India, was addressing a seminar at the Jindal University School of Banking and Finance. He said, "That's on top of the massive development that is taking place in India today right before our eyes. Some $2 trillion will be spent on infrastructure in just the next decade. The bulk of the infrastructure needed for 2030 is yet to be built. That's why some 100 new airports are under planning or construction today alone.…and you'll hold that advantage until 2050. That's pretty formidable," he said in his remarks on 'Driving Shared Prosperity — A 21st Century Priority for US-India Ties'

"We mark the start of this era with President Clinton's visit to India in the year 2000. It was a breakthrough visit after decades of being somewhat distant, and even at times, estranged," he added.
