Brookings India hosted a roundtable delegation featuring a high-level academic delegation from New Zealand. The discussion focussed on India’s perspectives on the Indo-Pacific and prospects for Indian cooperation with New Zealand and other Pacific island countries. What developments on the Pacific end of the Indo-Pacific have relevance for India today? As the geopolitics of the Indo-Pacific continue to undergo changes, how can big and small powers work together in the region? The discussion on these issues, focused on the diplomatic, military, and trade aspects of engagement, will begin with brief remarks from the following:
- H.K. Singh, Director General, Delhi Policy Group
