Three-day Indo-Pacific seminar from November 23: The Tribune India
New Delhi, November 20
A three-day international seminar, Indo-Pacific Regional Dialogue, will be held in New Delhi from November 23. The event will address issues facing the region, which stretches from India to the West Coast of the United States.
World-renowned speakers and eminent panelists will explore how areas of maritime cooperation envisioned in the Indo-Pacific Oceans Initiative (IPOI) program can be operationalized.
The seminar focuses on the IPOI and its operationalization, with particular emphasis on maritime security.
The seminar will review current geopolitics in the Indo-Pacific region and identify opportunities, dangers and potential problems. Organized by the National Maritime Foundation, the seminar will have six main themes: weaving the fabric of holistic maritime security; build security bridges across the Indo-Pacific, strengthen maritime connectivity, ports, trade and transport; the regional blue economy focused on the environmentally sensitive exploitation of marine resources; capacity building and improvement, and finally disaster risk reduction and management.
India has often expressed that it needs an Indo-Pacific that is peaceful, stable and based on a rules-based order in which the rules emanate from international consensus.
