Following the last few years of lack lustre performance by the United Progressive Alliance (UPA II) government in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was expected to achieve much with his clear majority in the Lower House (Lok Sabha). Have these expectations been borne out thus far, particularly in Foreign Policy? What are the challenges that he has to overcome?
While addressing these questions, the speaker will examine India’s relations with its immediate neighbourhood, relations with the US and the Modi government’s approach to Pakistan, China as well as the ASEAN countries. He will also look into future possibilities and likely agendas.
