The Maritime Research Centre (MRC), Pune and M/S NirDhwani Technology Pvt. Ltd. (NDT), in collaboration with the Institute of Contemporary Studies Bangalore (ICSB) and the Pathfinder Foundation, will host a webinar titled ‘India and the BIMSTEC: A New Perspective based on the Underwater Domain Awareness (UDA) Framework’ on 25 March at 4:00 p.m. The event is planned to bring together the industry, maritime strategists, policymakers, and others to reach out and build policy priorities for the UDA framework at the regional level. The interaction is expected to strengthen the Indo-Sri Lankan partnership and encourage joint acoustic capacity and capability building at the regional level.
The broad strategic relevance of this high-level dialogue entails that the participants get exposed to policy issues, technological means, innovative tools and measures, geopolitics, organisational aspects both nationally and globally, regional and global frameworks, and more.
