- India has been shut out of global nuclear technology markets for years
- Changing this could benefit its economy and help it achieve carbon emissions goals

India is making a big push to finally join the Nuclear Suppliers Group, which sets global rules on the spread of nuclear technology. Becoming a member is crucial for India, since it would solidify its ability to import and export nuclear technology freely. Without this, its nuclear energy sector could wither, with dire impacts for the country’s climate goals and its economy.
