JULY 5, 2018, 1030 - 1230 HRS.
In the midst of the ongoing power flux from the West to Asia and the re-emergence of strategic and geo-political competition, the relationship between India and France has witnessed remarkable progress in 2018. A “Joint Strategic Vision of India-France Cooperation in the Indian Ocean Region” was concluded on March 10, 2018, along with an agreement for reciprocal military logistical support. Indian and French companies are also intensifying defence manufacturing partnerships through joint ventures in areas vital to India’s defence capability.
In this latest edition of DPG’s Ambassadorial Roundtable Series, H.E. Ambassador Alexandre Ziegler delivered an address on “India-France Strategic Partnership in the Indo-Pacific” before joining in a moderated discussion under the Chatham House Rule.
