Institut Montaigne and the Observer Research Foundation (ORF) are bringing together a restricted group of high level Indian and French business leaders, government officials and foreign policy experts for a two-day online dialogue: "Moving forward the France-India partnership".

This event is part of a series of events and publications by Institut Montaigne’s Asia Program regarding France’s and Europe’s relations with India.

This France-India Dialogue follows Institut Montaigne’s Europe-India Strategy Group held last November, which was introduced by a joint statement by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs and his Portuguese counterpart, the publication of a series of articles under the supervision of Christophe Jaffrelot, Research Director, CERI (Centre de Recherches Internationales), Sciences Po/CNRS (Paris), on India’s healthcare system and the publication of Digital Privacy: How Can We Win the Battle? (November 2019), a study by François Godement, our Senior Advisor for Asia.
