CANCELLED: India-EU Partnership: New Vistas for the Next Decade

Policymakers, academics and private sector actors from the EU and India come together to work on common issues and explore further areas of cooperation.

Date: Mar 12 - 13, 2020 Topic: Global Economics & Governance

India and the European Union have strengthened their ties in recent years as India has risen as an increasingly important economic and strategic partner for the EU. The EU and India have entered a strategic partnership in 2004 and have since then collaborated on many issues, including climate change, trade, investment and organized a yearly EU-India summit. There still exist many areas in which the EU and India could expand their partnership, especially when it comes to tackling certain global issues that are of interest to both. This roundtable aims to foster a discussion on what these areas could be and what the shape of such cooperation would be.

This event is open only to select invitees and Bruegel’s Membership programme, with the exception of the session “India, Europe, and the G20 agenda” on 12th March, 18:30-20:00, which is a public event.

One last push is needed to improve the Just Transition Fund proposal

The European Parliament and the Council still have an opportunity to improve the Just Transition Fund by refocusing it on social support and basing fund allocations on more granular information that takes into account not only countries’ needs but also their green ambitions.

From G7 to G20: passing three hot potatoes

Yesterday’s G7 video-conference ended in silence. It wasn’t even possible for the group to issue a joint statement after the US administration's push to enter into a blame game over the Covid-19 label. However, let’s not give up. There is one more chance today for global coordination: the G20 emergency video-conference hosted by Saudi Arabia. This is the opportunity for the G20 to stand out and overshadow the G7 and for the world to end up with some international policy coordination. The key issues continue to be dollar liquidity, excessive dollar appreciation and plummeting oil prices.

What the EU should do and not do on trade in medical equipment
