Creating a Perspective for India-Taiwan Relations

28 Nov 2018

Prashant Kumar Singh

Venue: Seminar Room, ICS
Time: 3:00 PM

Abstract

Evaluating the underlying logics in India-Taiwan relations, Dr. Prashant Kumar Singh will analyse strength and prospects of India-Taiwan relations. Dr. Singh argues that while relations have demonstrated great potential for people-to-people relations and functional cooperation, yet underlining a strategic perspective for relations would require circumspection and prudence. He is of the view that the future of India-Taiwan relations lies in deepened people-to-people relations and strong functional cooperation. Develop ties with Taiwan in the positive territory of relations will enrich the discourse on India's Act East policy.
