Road to Raisina hills goes from PESB?

It is a sheer coincidence but yet remarkable. Former PESB Chairman Sanjay Kothari was abruptly made Secretary to the President years before he completed his tenure at PESB. Now, Kothari’s predecessor at PESB Kapil Dev Tripathy too was suddenly drafted as Kothari’s successor at Raisina hills. Coincidence but yet remarkable.

Raisina Dialogue: Solberg pitches for ocean economy

By IndianMandarins 09 Jan 2019

Prime Minister of Norway, Ms. Erna Solberg, has pitched for promoting and harnessing ocean economy and said that resources in the ocean should be used properly. 

 

Inaugurating the 4th edition of the Raisina Dialogue in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, and about 600 top leaders from 93 countries, she added that ocean is a common good that interlinks countries and so, the principle of might is right cannot be used for ocean governance. 


Her statement may be seen as an indirect criticism of the People's Republic of China (PRC) which has used force to capture some of the reefs and atolls in the South China Sea and weaponized them. 

 

Ms. Solberg said rapid climate changes in the Arctic area will have a far-reaching global impact and the world has a responsibility to protect the ocean. It may be noted that some countries including PRC have also been trying to capture the Arctic.

 

She also pitched for global order for international trade and said, international trade is for prosperity and to benefit citizens at large while ensuring growth. 

 

The Ministry of External Affairs in partnership with Observer Research Foundation is organizing the 4th edition of the Raisina Dialogue in New Delhi from 08-10 January 2019. The Raisina Dialogue is India’s flagship annual geopolitical and geostrategic conference.

 

This year, the theme of the Dialogue is "A World Reorder: New Geometries; Fluid Partnerships; Uncertain Outcomes”. The discussions will seek to address issues arising from ongoing global transitions and changes to the world order, triggered by unique leaders, innovative partnerships and new technologies.
