The European Institute for Asian Studies is collaborating with the Europe-India Chamber of Commerce in organizing the EU-India Trade and Investment Partnership Summit (TIPS) 2017, the flagship event of the Chamber’s  annual business summits, on Tuesday, 5 December 2017 in the Auditorium of Palace of the Academies, Brussels.

The Summit is dedicated to fostering bilateral trade, investment and economic relations between the European Union and India. During the last two decades, both the EU and India have undergone dramatic economic, social and political changes. The vast trade and business potential of India transforms it into an attractive and reliable business partner on international affairs. While the business and political establishment in India and Europe attempt to deepen their ties, cultural links between Europe and India have also been rapidly taking shape. To meet the suffocating international challenge and the EU being a major economic player, EU and India need to develop a much more comprehensive dialogue than it has done so far. Taking into account the current economic and political environment in the context of EU-India relations, and against a global backdrop of rapidly changing geo-political and economic developments, this year the signature themes of the TIPS is “EU-India: Seeking a Transformative Moment in a New World Order”. 

One of the key elements of the TIPS 2017 will be the introduction of the book on EU-India Relations authored by Ambassador Ms. Bhaswati Mukherjee. Ms. Mukherjee has been a seasoned Indian diplomat and has served in Europe in various diplomatic capacities as India’s envoy and has followed the changing dynamics and evolution of EU-India relations over last several years.

The Summit is being jointly organised in association with the Embassy of India, Eurochambres, Flanders Investment and Trade and Friends of Europe.
