31 January 2022 — 10:00AM TO 11:00AM

The UK government’s vision for the UK’s role in the world places great importance on the Indo-Pacific region, both in terms of economics and geopolitics. With his appointment to British High Commissioner to India a year ago, Alex Ellis CMG is focused on strengthening bilateral ties between the UK and India.

At this webinar, Alex Ellis CMG discusses the key priorities behind this UK-India partnership and what needs to be done to ensure success in the long term. What does this Indo-Pacific tilt mean for UK defence? In what ways are we seeing intensifying geopolitical competition in the region? With India-UK free trade agreement talks set for early 2022, what are the latest proposals and aims?

This event is only open to Chatham House Partners and Major Corporate Members as well as selected giving circles of Chatham House. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Linda Bedford.
