The Indo-Pacific region is the centre of gravity of economic growth in the world. The U.S. has shown incredible leadership and proposed an ‘Indo-Pacific Strategy’ focusing on the three critical areas of economics, governance and security. India too is seen as a leader among emerging economies. Any discussion on the Indo-Pacific will be fruitful if India and the U.S. are on the same page strategically. Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, several discussions on connectivity, security, trade, non-proliferation had taken place in the context of the Indo-Pacific region. However, in the ‘New Normal’ scenario, there is a need to revisit discussions on a stronger Indo-Pacific region, especially when most of the countries will now look inward for some time to come.

In this context, there is a need to talk about arriving at a revised architecture for globalisation in the post-covid-19 world order. It is proposed to organise a thought-provoking and interactive one-and-a-half day symposium to hold consultations on various themes that would revisit the Indo-Pacific architecture keeping in mind the Post-Covid-19 world order. ISB will be working to bring on board key stakeholders from India and to engage them in fruitful discussions.
