On Monday 9 December the Chair of the Delegation, Dinesh Dhamija welcomed Her Excellency, Ambassador Gaitri Issar Kumar for an exchange of views with the delegation members. India and the EU have been strategic partners since 2004. In 2018, the EU adopted its new Strategy on India, which not only comprises a wide range of cooperation areas, but also aims at adding momentum to this relationship, that has not reached its full potential.
