Policy Exchange (UK) and the Observer Research Foundation (India) jointly organised the inaugural edition of The New Anglo-India Dialogue: Global Challenges and Tech Power in the 2020s. This dialogue sought to revisit the India-UK partnership amidst emergent opportunities in the realms of Green Finance, Fintech and Space. With this policy focus, the dialogue aimed to reimagine cooperation between London and New Delhi in the context of new geographies (Commonwealth 2.0), new domains (space, digital, technology) and new challenges (non-traditional security issues, climate change, the vaccine challenge).
