Mukherjee meets Indian heads of mission in Brussels

External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee chaired a day-long Conference of Indias Heads of Missions in EU States in Brussels today.

New Delhi, May 30 : External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee chaired a day-long Conference of India's Heads of Missions in EU States in Brussels today.

Twenty-one Heads of Missions attended the Conference.

Addressing the Heads of Missions, Mukherjee underlined the importance of the Strategic Partnership between India and the EU, which is now India's largest trade partner.

He also described the EU as the source of one-fifth of India's FDI as well as an important destination for Indian investment.

The Strategic Partnership, he said was underpinned by an extensive Joint Action Programme adopted in 2005.

"Summits have been held annually since 2000 and the next Summit is expected to be held in New Delhi late in 2007. Our effort is to increasingly move the relationship beyond trade and economic relationship into areas such as science and technology, cooperation in counter terrorism, access to new energy and renewable energy technologies, space, environment etc. Negotiations are also expected to begin on a wide-ranging Free Trade Agreement between India and EU soon," he said.

The Heads of Missions briefed Mukherjee on aspects of the Indo-EU Strategic Partnership, principal issues of bilateral relations between India and countries of their accreditation as well as important developments in Europe/EU and NATO.
