The India-France Track 1.5 Dialogue: Innovation, Sustainability, and Multilateral Cooperation is a three-year initiative between Gateway House, Mumbai, and the Institut français des relations internationals (Ifri), Paris, to enhance the growing relationship between India and France. Think tank experts, government officials, and business leaders will convene annually to promote bilateral economic growth and innovation.
India and France maintain strong relations built on the foundation of collective values and common goals. Economic and strategic ties between India and France are expanding, and there are new areas to explore for mutual benefit. The Track 1.5 Dialogue is a suitable format for this. Both countries prioritise sustainability, energy, and the Indo-Pacific region. The Dialogue aims to provide policy recommendations to promote innovation and navigate evolving governance issues through bilateral and multilateral cooperation.
