EU-India Relations — Keeping up the Momentum Needed for a Vital Strategic Partnership

06-09-2016

Relations between the EU and India seem to be back on track since leaders met in Brussels, on 30 March 2016, for their first summit in four years. They endorsed the EU-India Agenda for Action 2020 and their water, clean energy and climate partnerships; they welcomed the negotiations on a broad-based Bilateral Trade and Investment Agreement (BTIA) and agreed that the fact that they are currently stalled should not stand in the way of the overall development of the relationship. They set a common agenda ...

Relations between the EU and India seem to be back on track since leaders met in Brussels, on 30 March 2016, for their first summit in four years. They endorsed the EU-India Agenda for Action 2020 and their water, clean energy and climate partnerships; they welcomed the negotiations on a broad-based Bilateral Trade and Investment Agreement (BTIA) and agreed that the fact that they are currently stalled should not stand in the way of the overall development of the relationship. They set a common agenda on migration and mobility and they adopted a joint declaration on counter-terrorism. It is vital to keep up the momentum created at the summit. The strategic relationship is vital to both sides: India is Asia’s third-largest economy and the world’s fastest growing economy and the EU is India’s biggest trading partner. The EU is also the largest investor in India, with foreign direct investment stock valued at EUR 38.5 billion in 2014, and is the primary destination for Indian foreign investment.

India and China: Too Close for Comfort?

15-07-2016

India and China — two emerging Asian giants — have historically been polar opposites in many ways and relations between them have been tense. In recent years, however, their co-operation has been improving and they have signed numerous bilateral agreements. From the EU’s perspective, it is crucial to monitor the relationship between these strategic partners. Not only do these two emerging countries have the two largest populations in the world, but projections suggest that they will together account ...

India and China — two emerging Asian giants — have historically been polar opposites in many ways and relations between them have been tense. In recent years, however, their co-operation has been improving and they have signed numerous bilateral agreements. From the EU’s perspective, it is crucial to monitor the relationship between these strategic partners. Not only do these two emerging countries have the two largest populations in the world, but projections suggest that they will together account for a significant share of the world economy by the middle of the century. The EU must be able to meet the regional and even global challenges presented by the rise of China and India.

La Thaïlande en 2016: restauration ou renversement de la démocratie ?

18-04-2016

Après avoir fomenté un coup d'État militaire contre le gouvernement de Yingluck Shinawatra, une junte a pris le pouvoir en Thaïlande et dirige le pays depuis le 22 mai 2014. Cette junte a imposé des restrictions radicales aux activités politiques et à la liberté d'expression. De nombreuses violations des droits de l'homme ont été signalées, notamment des cas de torture. La 'feuille de route vers la démocratie' prévoit l'organisation, en août 2017, d'un référendum sur l'instauration d'une nouvelle ...

Après avoir fomenté un coup d'État militaire contre le gouvernement de Yingluck Shinawatra, une junte a pris le pouvoir en Thaïlande et dirige le pays depuis le 22 mai 2014. Cette junte a imposé des restrictions radicales aux activités politiques et à la liberté d'expression. De nombreuses violations des droits de l'homme ont été signalées, notamment des cas de torture. La 'feuille de route vers la démocratie' prévoit l'organisation, en août 2017, d'un référendum sur l'instauration d'une nouvelle constitution, qui pourrait être suivi d'élections à un stade ultérieur. Cependant, les militaires devraient conserver le pouvoir jusqu'à ce que le successeur du roi accède au trône, afin de garantir la stabilité du pays. Malgré ses liens commerciaux étroits avec la Thaïlande, l'Union européenne a suspendu la signature de l'accord de partenariat et de coopération et les négociations d'un accord de libre-échange jusqu'au rétablissement de la démocratie. En avril 2015, la Commission européenne a adressé un carton jaune d'avertissement à la Thaïlande pour des problèmes de pêche illicite, non déclarée et non réglementée (INN).

Viêt Nam: Malgré de sérieuses préoccupations concernant les droits de l'homme, un partenaire prometteur pour l'UE en Asie

14-10-2015

2015, qui marque le 25e anniversaire de l'établissement de relations diplomatiques entre l'UE et le Viêt Nam, sera une année charnière. Trois ans après la conclusion entre l'UE et le Viêt Nam d'un accord cadre global de coopération et de partenariat (ACP), il a été demandé au Parlement européen d'approuver cet accord. De son côté, la Commission européenne a annoncé le 4 août 2015 l'aboutissement de trois ans de négociations en vue d'un accord de libre-échange (ALE). Le renforcement des relations ...

De son côté, la Commission européenne a annoncé le 4 août 2015 l'aboutissement de trois ans de négociations en vue d'un accord de libre-échange (ALE). Le renforcement des relations avec l'UE constitue en effet une priorité pour la République socialiste du Viêt Nam, qui vise à contrebalancer la forte influence de la Chine en préservant son indépendance par rapport aux États-Unis. Le Parti Communiste garde fermement les commandes de l'appareil d'État. La liberté des média et de la société civile est strictement limitée. La situation des droits de l'homme reste déplorable.

L'Assemblée interparlementaire de l'ANASE (AIPA) : un interlocuteur privilégié pour le Parlement européen

20-08-2015

Les fonctions principales de l'Assemblée interparlementaire de l'ANASE (AIPA) sont de promouvoir une coopération plus étroite entre les parlements des pays membres de l'association des nations de l'Asie du Sud-Est (ANASE) et de faciliter la réalisation des objectifs de l'ANASE. L'AIPA n'est pas le parlement de l'ANASE: elle n'a pas de pouvoirs législatifs, ses résolutions ne sont pas contraignantes et elle ne procède pas au vote du budget de l'association. L'AIPA joue toutefois un rôle important ...

L'AIPA n'est pas le parlement de l'ANASE: elle n'a pas de pouvoirs législatifs, ses résolutions ne sont pas contraignantes et elle ne procède pas au vote du budget de l'association. L'AIPA joue toutefois un rôle important dans l'évolution du contexte politique en Asie du Sud-Est. En effet, alors que l'entrée en vigueur de la communauté économique de l'ANASE est imminente, l'AIPA constitue un forum parlementaire au sein duquel les parlementaires peuvent échanger des informations sur des questions d'intérêt commun. La participation du Parlement européen à l'assemblée générale de l'AIPA offre une occasion unique de mener un dialogue avec les pays membres et les pays observateurs de l'ANASE.

The Increasing Role of the EU's Culture, Education and Science Diplomacy in Asia

24-06-2015

During the last decades, technological changes and globalisation have altered international relations. Just as the growth of telecommunications and transport technologies has facilitated the rapid dissemination of information and the global movement of people, traditional diplomacy has gradually grown to incorporate new methods, in which people-to-people contacts, networks and non-state actors play an influential role. The EU engages in cultural, education and scientific cooperation activities with ...

During the last decades, technological changes and globalisation have altered international relations. Just as the growth of telecommunications and transport technologies has facilitated the rapid dissemination of information and the global movement of people, traditional diplomacy has gradually grown to incorporate new methods, in which people-to-people contacts, networks and non-state actors play an influential role. The EU engages in cultural, education and scientific cooperation activities with most Asian countries, and particularly with China, India, Japan and South Korea. Yet despite the diverse outreach efforts of the EU Delegations across Asia, and despite the increasing number of Asian students coming to study and research in Europe, knowledge of the EU remains scant in Asia.

Pakistan and China: 'Iron Brothers' Forever?

18-06-2015

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the People's Republic of China have enjoyed long-lasting and friendly ties – despite their ideological differences, evident in their very names. The two share far more than a 520 kilometre border, as underscored by the April 2015 visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Pakistan. On that trip – his first trip abroad in 2015 – Xi announced a EUR 41.30-billion commitment to building a multi-faceted network called the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The ...

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the People's Republic of China have enjoyed long-lasting and friendly ties – despite their ideological differences, evident in their very names. The two share far more than a 520 kilometre border, as underscored by the April 2015 visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Pakistan. On that trip – his first trip abroad in 2015 – Xi announced a EUR 41.30-billion commitment to building a multi-faceted network called the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The CPEC can be understood as part of China's 'pivot to Asia' and plays a role in Beijing's broader 'One Belt One Road' initiative. If completed, the CPEC has the potential to fundamentally alter South Asia's economy and geopolitics.

EU - ASEAN: Challenges Ahead

08-12-2014

The EU and ASEAN are both regional organisations created to manage countries' interdependence and answer regional security challenges. While the two have different histories and integration processes, they correlate as natural partners, with cooperation on integration the core of their relationship. The EU supports ASEAN not only financially but also through exchanges and projects aimed at sharing experiences and expertise. In light of the global shift towards Asia, relations with ASEAN are particularly ...

The EU and ASEAN are both regional organisations created to manage countries' interdependence and answer regional security challenges. While the two have different histories and integration processes, they correlate as natural partners, with cooperation on integration the core of their relationship. The EU supports ASEAN not only financially but also through exchanges and projects aimed at sharing experiences and expertise. In light of the global shift towards Asia, relations with ASEAN are particularly important for the EU. The Union is seeking to increase dialogue and cooperation with ASEAN, as well as to pursue closer coordination on regional and international issues. The European Parliament can play a role in this by deepening the inter-parliamentary aspect of the relationship and scrutinising EU agreements negotiated with countries in the region.

India's 2014 Legislative Elections: The Lack of Economic Miracles Lands the Congress Party on the Opposition Benches

27-05-2014

The EU’s relationship with India and the floundering bilateral trade negotiations may be reinvigorated by the results of the country’s elections for India’s lower house of parliament – the Lok Sabha – held between 7 April and 12 May 2014. The landslide victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its leader, Narendra Modi, came at the expense of the Congress party; after being in power for all but 18 years since the country's independence in 1947, Congress obtained only 44 seats – less than 8 ...

The EU’s relationship with India and the floundering bilateral trade negotiations may be reinvigorated by the results of the country’s elections for India’s lower house of parliament – the Lok Sabha – held between 7 April and 12 May 2014. The landslide victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its leader, Narendra Modi, came at the expense of the Congress party; after being in power for all but 18 years since the country's independence in 1947, Congress obtained only 44 seats – less than 8 % of the total – in the recent ballot. The new Common People's Party, which performed well in 2013-regional elections in the capital, Delhi, obtained only four seats nationwide. Modi, a Hindu nationalist who led the state of Gujarat, had been shunned by the EU and the US for many years for his part in the 2002 Gujarat riots. But between the recent elections and his investiture, on 26 May 2014, both transatlantic powers made friendly overtures to the new prime minister. Negotiations within the BJP and with potential coalition partners are well underway, and the composition of the new Indian government should be known soon. As Modi’s election campaign focussed on domestic issues, and in particular on the ailing Indian economy, the BJP-led government’s stance on foreign relations – including on cross-border trade and investment and negotiations with the EU on the stalled free trade agreement – will soon crystallise.
