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.
