Franklin will be present in a virtual platform on the future direction of Indian foreign policy organized by The Diplomatist

On January 28, 2021 a group of distinguished personalities, thought leaders, executives and influencers will gather virtually to partake in the “India Global Dialogue”. This event is organized by The Diplomatist, an influential monthly publication focusing on international relations and Indian foreign affairs. The Dialogue will discuss perspectives for India’s foreign policy in the context of the pandemic and evaluate strategies that could be implemented to meet the emerging challenges and non-traditional opportunities in the world.

The event will throw light on significant aspects of India’s foreign policy in the present unsettled global environment and will come up with strategies and policy suggestions. The various sessions will include expert panels discussing “India’s Pandemic Diplomacy”, “India-GCC Relations: Examining Future Possibilities”, “The Biden Administration and The Future of US-India Ties” and “India: a Global Power House”.

Franklin University Switzerland will be represented by Professor Roberto Cordón, Executive in Residence, International Relations and Management who will intervene as a panelist in the closing session. Professor Cordón will address the group on “India’s increasing trade presence in Latin America”, drawing from his interest in Latin American political economy and his background at the International Trade Centre (ITC), an agency of the UN and WTO. At the ITC Professor Cordón spent many years as Manager of Training Programmes for the Market Analysis Section and worked with international aid agencies to develop trade-related technical cooperation and capacity-building projects in developing countries.
