Dr Jasper Wieck, Deputy Chief of Mission, German Embassy New Delhi, delivered the Special Remarks at the first meeting of FICCI-KAS Dialogue Series titled ‘Multilateralism at Crossroads’ held in New Delhi on Monday, 19th February.
“Multilateralism provides for inclusiveness, ownership and transparency and therefore offers enhanced legitimacy when coping with the challenges that we face. Multilateralism today might be under stress - as it has often been in the past. Eventually multilateral
structures and institutions willprevail while adapting to a changing international environment”, said Dr Wieck. “In this process India and Germany together can make a difference, be it in international trade and investment relationships or in the area of cooperative security”, he added.
The first fixture of the FICCI-KAS Dialogue Series was co-organized by FICCI's Forum of Parliamentarians and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS). The invitees included parliamentarians, industry experts, heads of multilateral agencies, university scholars and representatives from think tanks.
