In light of the impending visit that PM Modi’s will pay to Nepal in the coming weeks -the first one to the country after his election-, AIDIA wanted to provide Nepal’s younger audience with a valuable insight on the expectations generated by the visit, as well as with an accurate analysis on the impact and consequences that India’s new diplomatic, economic and regional integration policies would bring to its neighbours in general, and to Nepal in particular.

For the occasion, the Institute arranged a roundtable that counted on the active participation of Dr Dattesh Prabhu Parulekar, Member and Spokesperson of the National Foreign Affairs Cell, BJP, India; and of Mr Ram Karki, Former In-charge of Foreign Affairs Cell, UCPN Maoist, Nepal, who shared their views on the existing relations between the two countries, as well as their understandings on the prospects for changes on them during PM Modi’s tenure.
