Dr. Ney underlined that the time has come  for India’s arrival on the world stage. This comes with high expectations. The concept of the Indo-Pacific is not about a mere geographical region – it is a political concept. The Free and Open Indo-Pacific will be an area of peace, development and prosperity.

The European Union, with the active participation of Germany, just published an India-EU-Strategy which clearly indicates our preparedness, to contribute to the development of the region – together with India. Ambassador Dr. Ney stressed, that the discussion is about an idea whose time has come – and India is at the very centre of that idea.
