Aspen Institute India organised a round table on one of India’s key and closest Aneighbour Bangladesh and discussed the current state of bilateral ties to explore avenues and identify challenges to deepen the bonds between the two countries, in July 2012. India and Bangladesh share a common history and culture. People-to-people contacts are excellent and the relationship has deepened over the past few years. India and Bangladesh’s geographical locations complement each other and present an opportunity for both to further develop their connectivity links and economies. The round table brought together the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy, a senior official in the Ministry of External Affairs, senior editors, business and industry leaders, analysts and former diplomats including one of India’s former High Commissioner to Bangladesh. The round table identified the challenges in relationship and explored new areas of cooperation between India and Bangladesh. This report presents a set of recommendations based on the round table that could deepen ties between the two countries. Aspen Institute India trusts this document will be of value in better understanding of India-Bangladesh relationship. The theme for this year’s dialogue was “Crafting New Korea–India Strategic Partnership amid COVID-19 Pandemic: Co-Navigation and Emerging Opportunities.” The dialogue was co-chaired by Dr. Naushad Forbes, Chairman, Forbes Marshall & Chairman, Ananta Aspen Centre, and Professor Choong Yong Ahn, Distinguished Professor, Chung-Ang University.
