Modi’s Agenda: the next 100 days

In its first week in office, the new government has sent out signals outlining India’s economic and foreign policy outlook. This is exactly what Gateway House has envisioned and recommended in its publications over the course of the last three years

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made clear his intention of bringing India to the forefront of a vibrant Asia. His agenda includes a cohesive and economically co-joined SAARC, a robust and connected North East, and a response to the overtures of China and East Asia.

It is exactly what Gateway House has envisioned. Over the last three years, our publications have focused on the neighbourhood, with views from scholars therein on what they think India’s policies towards them should be; developing the connectivity of our neglected but critical North East through the build-out of a Seven Sisters’ Corridor to Thailand, Myanmar and ASEAN; China, and how Prime Minister Li Keqiang would like to be to India what Nixon was to his nation. Further away, but just as important are the new markets and models in Latin American countries, especially their use of ethanol as an alternate fuel.
