The Maritime Research Centre (MRC), Pune and M/S NirDhwani Technology Pvt Ltd (NDT) in collaboration with the Pathfinder Foundation Sri Lanka and the Institute of Contemporary Studies Bangalore (ICSB), proposes to host a webinar titled “India and the BIMSTEC: A New Perspective based on the Underwater Domain Awareness (UDA) Framework” on 25 Mar 2022 at 1600 hrs. The event is planned to bring together the industry, maritime strategists, policy makers and others, to be able to reach out and build policy priority for the UDA framework at the regional level. The interactions will strengthen the Indo-Sri Lankan partnership and encourage joint acoustic capacity and capability building at the regional level. The broad strategic relevance of the high level dialogue entails that the participants get exposed to the policy issues, technological means, innovative tools and measures, geopolitics, organizational aspects both nationally and globally, regional and global frameworks, and more. A detailed dialogue resolution will be prepared and submitted to the authorities and agencies within and outside the government for further action.
