India in the focus of BISR expert diplomacy

On May 2, BISR managers and analysts held an online conference with representatives of the DAKSHIN Global South Centre of Excellence at the Research and Information System for Developing Countries, one of the oldest analytical centers in India.

For reference:

The structure was established in 1983 under Non-Aligned Movement as a think tank for developing countries with headquarters in New Delhi. Main research areas: global economic governance and cooperation; trade, economic and investment cooperation; trade facilitation, interconnectedness and regional cooperation; new technologies and development challenges. It is intended as a forum to promote effective policy dialogue and capacity-building among developing countries on global and regional economic issues. Apart from conducting research, it is engaged in training in the field of trade and technology, as well as capacity-building analysis. In 2016, RIS also launched broader efforts to achieve the SDGs, trade and environmental sustainability, science diplomacy, South-South cooperation, and emerging global governance issues. It has a well-developed network of partner institutions in India and beyond, and operates a large network of NeST think tanks.

During the virtual communication, the meeting participants presented the professional profiles of their structures on a mutual basis, and also discussed possible areas, formats and mechanisms of cooperation in order to exchange experience and best practices in areas of mutual interest.

The possible prospects for practical cooperation in the Africa-India-Belarus format were highlighted separately.

The BISR management confirmed its readiness to gradually join the work within the NeST network of analytical centers.

The efforts made by BISR to develop partnerships with leading Indian think tanks are designed to contribute to solving the applied tasks laid down in the draft Roadmap for the development of key areas of cooperation with India for 2024-2026.
