The business of diplomacy

The recent ASEAN-India Car Rally is a fine example of MEA-industry partnership. So, too, the India-Africa Project Partnership series, held both in India and different African regions with positive outcomes.

A comprehensive strategy for leveraging economic opportunities between India and the world would not only involve a partnership between the MEA and Indian industry associations, but also include the embassies of other countries in India, as well as their industry associations. As Indian industry expands its global footprint, it looks forward to working closely with the Indian government.
