Delhi Dialogue IX: Charting course for India-ASEAN relations

Delhi Dialogue is an annual Track 1.5 forum for discussing politico-security, economic and social-cultural issues between ASEAN and India. Since 2009 when the conference was first held, Delhi Dialogue has emerged as an important forum at which political leaders, policy makers, researchers, academicians, business leaders and media persons converge to brainstorm on a range of issues pertaining to ASEAN-India relations.

As the global community grapples with issues ranging from a lack of strategic stability, increasing non-compliance with a rule-based approach and rising trade protectionism, Asia needs countries who can preserve current multilateral rules and foster new ones that undergird the liberal and progressive international order that we cherish.
