Clinton, who was on a two-day visit to the city, said that strategic interests of both the countries were alike.
"Strategic interests are alike. India is a regional and an increasing global power recognised with its economic, diplomatic and military influence," she said.
"It is good news that India is taking up more responsibilities because the international community cannot solve the problems unless all the countries work together," she said.
Referring to India's economic reforms, Clinton said, "A lot of progress has been made and more can be done to reduce the barriers to trade and investment, reforms in manufacturing to retail could create jobs and lower consumer prices in both the countries."
