Collaboration and cooperation between our jurisdictions make emminent sense. Both the EU and India strive to harness technology for digital transformation and promote our industries and startups while protecting our citizens and societies from harm. Both have an innate respect for democratic values, inclusion, equity, human rights and diversity.
