EU shapes its ambitious strategy on India

EU shapes its ambitious strategy on India

The European Commission and the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy have adopted a Joint Communication that sets out the EU's vision for a strategy to strengthen cooperation and the partnership with India, Caspian Energy News ( reports with reference to the press statement of the European Commission.

“India is a key player in our interconnected world”, said High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini. “We want to further reinforce our political, economic and people-to-people ties with India in order to address together global challenges, to promote together economic growth and to expand together business opportunities”, she added.

This Joint Communication replaces the last Commission Communication on India of 2004, recognising that India has emerged as the fastest-growing large economy and has acquired an important geopolitical role. The Communication aims to strengthen the EU-India Strategic Partnership by focusing on sustainable modernisation and on common responses to global and regional issues.

The EU will seek to consolidate dialogue on multilateral issues, and to coordinate positions with India. Cooperation in the framework of the United Nations, the WTO and the G20 will be of priority.

The proposals made in the Joint Communication will now be discussed in the European Parliament and the Council.
