Bruegel · Europe and India: Comparing Approaches to Global Economic Challenges | Session 4 (Data and digital)

India and Europe share common interests in dealing with global economic challenges including those related to the Covid-19 pandemic, the crisis of the trading system, climate change and the digital transformation. They also share and shape the global geopolitical environment within which these challenges are unfolding.

The purpose of this webinar will be to compare the approaches of Europe and India to some of these common challenges and assess how far they converge or contrast with each other and what can be done to increase convergence through both multilateral and bilateral initiatives.

India and the European Union are both strong supporters of multilateralism and a rules-based global order, and influential actors in multilateral fora such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Paris Agreement. They are also strategic partners and their Leaders have endorsed at the 15th EU-India Summit held in July 2020 the “EU-India Strategic Partnership: A Roadmap to 2025” as a common roadmap to guide joint action and further strengthen the EU-India Strategic Partnership over the next five years.

The webinar will consist of four virtual sessions, each 90 minutes long, led by two panelists, one Indian and one European. All four sessions will be co-chaired by Amb Shyam Saran of CPR and Andre Sapir of Bruegel. The sessions will be on following topics:

  1. Strategic Environment
  2. Trade
  3. Climate Change
  4. Digital Transformation

The objective of these sessions is to foster deeper conversations between Indian and European stakeholders. To this end, the session will aim to be as interactive as possible, inviting lively engagement from participants. Participants will include serving and retired government officials as well as representatives of the private sector, media and think tanks/academia.

This is event is organised in cooperation with the Centre for Policy Research (CPR).
