The EU is a long-standing and trusted partner in India's economic and social development.
At an event to celebrate Europe Day on May 9, 2018 in New Delhi, H.E. Ambassador Tomasz Kozlowski emphasised the many facets which have made the EU-India strategic partnership a bold and
determined action plan to deliver inclusive and sustainable growth.
In his reply, India's Minister of State for External Affairs Mr. M.J. Akbar recalled that these two great Unions, founded at more or less the same time and espousing the same values, had a proud record of sixty years of
fruitful cooperation and evolution.
A short video of 4 minutes made for this occasion was screened for the distinguished audience and offered a compelling overview of the many initiatives launched and taken forward in recent months in the areas of
security, sustainability, climate change, research, trade and investment, and education and cultural ties between people on both sides.
