Interaction and presentation by Dr. Chaitanya Patil at the Maritime Research Centre, Pune

Background of the event

India is emerging as a maritime nation in the world 

In the 21st century, India is emerging as a maritime nation with a significant strategic push for the maritime domain’s capacity and capability building. There has been a significant shift towards the maritime domain in strategic security and sustainable growth, and the government is prioritizing the blue economy and maritime security. Therefore, India stands at the brink of a remarkable transformation today, with both global and domestic cues highly favorable and we as a nation are in a sweet spot. The country is perfectly poised to embark on a new phase of growth, owing to favorable political, economic, demographic, socio-cultural, and other circumstances.

As the global community witnesses massive strategic deployment in the Indo-Pacific region, the tropical waters need specialized underwater capabilities to manage strategic security and blue economic objectives. An effective Underwater Domain Awareness (UDA) is the most critical driver for the Security And Growth for All in the Region (SAGAR) vision – an ambitious declaration to claim India’s leadership in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR) and beyond. The demographic bulge in India can be channeled effectively to provide the talent pool across all levels to drive the global agenda.
