Inaugurating the sixth edition of the Raisina Dialogue virtually, Mr Modi said, mankind will not defeat the pandemic unless everyone, everywhere, regardless of the colour of their passports, come out of it.He also asked global leaders to have cooperation to address problems like hunger and poverty. President of Rwanda Paul Kagame said, COVID19 is also a crisis of international cooperation as access to vaccines is highly unequal. He said, without India’s production capacity and spirit of solidarity, Africa would not have received many vaccines. Mr Kagame said it demonstrates the possibility of more private sector cooperation between India and Africa. He said, knowledge, innovation and the green economy will still be the key drivers of growth after the pandemic.
Prime Minister of Denmark Mette Frederiksen said, without private and public cooperation, the green industrial revolution cannot happen. She said, we must reform, transform and perform and join forces across the globe. The Event is jointly organised by the Ministry of External Affairs and the Observer Research Foundation. The theme for the 2021 Edition is “#ViralWorld: Outbreaks, Outliers and Out of Control”.
