Building on its tradition of holding bilateral discussion with think tank partners in India, a Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) team will be joining an “India-Bangladesh Strategic Dialogue” to be held in Delhi on June 22-23.

The discussion is being jointly organized by the Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) and the Ananta Aspen Centre, New Delhi, said a press release.

This is a Track-Two (non-government) initiative, and the second dialogue under the CPD-Ananta Aspen collaboration.

The first dialogue was held virtually on May 18 earlier this year.

CPD along with its partners in India over the years has organized 16 such dialogues, which were held alternatively in Dhaka and Delhi.

The Delhi CPD-Ananta Aspen upcoming dialogue will discuss a range of bilateral issues having strategic and contemporary relevance.

Participants will deliberate on water sharing, multimodal connectivity including road, rail, water, coastal shipping, energy and digital connectivity.

Bilateral cooperation will be explored in novel areas such as monetary cooperation and technology transfer.

The evolution of bilateral relations will also be assessed in the context of emerging geo-strategic circumstances.

It is anticipated that at a time when the two countries stand at important crossroads and are heading towards national elections, the dialogue will be an opportunity to discuss how Indo-Bangladesh bilateral relationship could be reframed and re-imagined in a way that meets the aspirations of both the countries and their people.

The dialogue in New Delhi will bring together high-level policy makers, experts and partners from both countries.

From Bangladesh, the participants include Fahmida Khatun, executive director, CPD; Dr Debapriya Bhattacharya, distinguished fellow, CPD; Prof Mustafizur Rahman, distinguished fellow, CPD; Brig Gen (retd) Sakhawat Hussain, former election commissioner, Bangladesh Election Commission; Md Shahidul Haque, former senior secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Prof Amena Mohsin of the Department of International Relations, University of Dhaka; Prof M Tamim of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET); and Shams Mahmud, president, Bangladesh-Thai Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
