Neighbourly Love: BJP for Hindi-Chini Bhai Bhai

Quote:
NEW DELHI: When BJP leader Siddharth Nath Singh led a delegation of party youth leaders to China last week, his official hosts—the Communist Party of China—had the entire lowdown on his standing within his party and his recent exploits in taking on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

Singh, who is BJP’s national secretary and West Bengal in-charge, was in for a surprise when his hosts went out of their way to make the delegation feel at home and appeared eager to engage with India’s ruling party.

The bonhomie in Beijing may be in sharp contrast to the recent skirmishes on the Indo-China border, but that hasn’t come in the way of people-to-people interactions between the ruling political parties of these two countries. Certainly, the BJP is making efforts to learn all about India’s difficult neighbour.

After this 14-member BJP delegation returned, another delegation comprising BJP MPs and MLAs from party-ruled states is expected to visit China soon to exchange notes on economic issues. Finally, party president Amit Shah will visit China in December once he is done with elections in Jharkhand and Jammu & Kashmir. After Nitin Gadkari (who went in 2011), Shah would be the second BJP chief to visit China.

“China has already reached its saturation point in terms of development and industry. It has become an expensive economy. They need space to grow. India can provide that space for them to expand,” Singh said. “We told the hosts, particularly the higher ups of the Communist Party, that the ‘Make in India’ campaign started by PM Narendra Modi can help Chinese industry set up their manufacturing facility in India. This will generate jobs here,” he said.

“Already other countries are willing to come to India to invest and China may miss the bus if they don’t see opportunity here,” another member of the delegation said. The delegation handpicked by the PMO had 11 BJP leaders like Muruganandam, from the BJP Youth Wing; Madhya Pradesh general secretary Vinod Gontia; Rashmi Sood from BJP Mahila Morcha; Nidhi Vyas, a law student from Gujarat and BJP leaders from states such as Jharkhand and Odisha. Non-BJP members included K G Suresh from Vivekananda Foundation and the editor of RSS magazine Panchjanya, Hitesh Shankar. The delegation visited Beijing, Chongquig, Shanghai and Guangzhou.

Another purpose of the visit was to sign sister state agreements between Indian states and Chinese provinces for better trade relations. “We presented all data on making Chennai and Chongquig as sister cities. The proposal has been accepted. The Chinese delegation will visit on November 17 for final agreement,” Muruganandam said.

“The Chinese have made plans till 2030. This prompted us to look at development afresh. They opened small-scale industries in rural areas to stem migration to urban areas. Controlling this process of urbanisation was what we studied,” he added.

Before the current BJP delegation, RSS leader and newly appointed BJP general secretary Ram Madhav had gone to China on a study tour in September ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to India.

This increased engagement with the Chinese also stems from the fact that India can learn a lot from its neighbour in terms of development and creating infrastructure. “They have created a new rail link between Germany and China which has reduced the travel from 45 days to mere 12 days. The rail line covers 10,000 km in Hamburg in Germany and Zhengzhou in China,” said a leader who recently returned from a study tour.

“No doubt their development has been good, but social inequities still exist in China. We saw this gap during our visits to rural areas. We even clicked pictures of beggars and showed them to the Chinese officials and business leaders who claimed they are fully developed,” the leader added.

Chinese in turn acknowledged India’s superior command over the English language, an area they lag behind in. “But we will overtake you in five years, the Chinese officials told us,” a BJP leader said.

The BJP delegations are expected to create a favourable atmosphere about India in China. Chinese President Jinping visited India in September 2014 and Modi is expected to pay a return visit sometime next year. He had earlier visited China in 2011 when he was the Gujarat chief minister.

Sources said the BJP delegation did raise the issue of border incursions with the Chinese.

PM Modi to focus on trade relations, logistics at India-ASEAN summit

- See more at: http://indianexpress.com/article/bus....qbXuwZ7R.dpuf

Quote:
In a bid to step up India’s engagement with the 10-nation ASEAN bloc, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to make a strong pitch for improving regional connectivity to give a boost to trade and people-to-people contact at the upcoming summit meeting next week.

Modi is slated to leave for Myanmar on Tuesday to attend the 12th ASEAN-India summit on November 12 and the 9th East Asian summit on November 13 on the first leg of his three-nation foreign tour that will also take him to Australia and Fiji.

Giving a broad overview of the summits, Anil Wadhwa, Secretary (East) in the External Affairs Ministry, said India is keen that the next ASEAN-India five-year plan of action starting 2016 should focus on improving people-to-people contact, ramping up trade relations and reinforcing the strategic engagement.

The plan will also focus on security architecture in the region, he said. There could be progress on a project to develop a 3,200-km highway linking India, Myanmar and Thailand that was originally envisaged to be completed by end-2017. It is now expected to be completed in 2018. Wadhwa said India and the 10-nation ASEAN bloc hope to dovetail the connectivity plans with this highway project.

Modi in a tweet earlier this week said that India’s ties with ASEAN are “deep rooted” and that strengthening relations with the nations in the grouping are an important part of its ‘Act East’ policy”.

He said he looked forward to meeting leaders attending the two summits in Myanmar. “ASEAN is central to our dream of an Asian century, where India will play a crucial role. Am sure the meetings there would be fruitful,” he had said.

China to Chennai: A Tamil Radio that bridges two cultures


China-India Development Fund, amounting to $ 5 billion , has been launched for possible investments in infrastructure projects in India. (Reuters)

Quote:
25-year-old Chinese broadcast journalist Liao Liang speaks Tamil with such a fluency that will make a native speaker of the language feel envious. Liao, who works in the Tamil Department of the state-run China Radio International (CRI) introduces herself on the show as ‘Poongothai’, a name that has become an integral part of her multi-lingual identity and to her listeners in India and around the world.

At the over 70-year-old China Radio, she is part of a 20-odd member Tamil language broadcast team, which includes mostly Tamil-speaking Chinese employees along with a few native speakers hailing from India. Meet Liao and she would greet you with a ‘vanakkam’ and her hands folded in the Indian gesture. She says, “knowing Tamil lets her understand and connect with people of India.”

“I learned this language out of sheer curiosity. I know it’s a difficult language with a tough grammar but I wanted to learn it. And, so I enrolled myself at a university, where my Tamil (Indian) teacher gave me my Tamil name. And, from there my journey began,” Liao told PTI here.

Born in the city of Quzou in Zhejiang, an eastern coastal province, she moved to Beijing to pursue an undergraduate diploma course in Tamil from the Communication University of China, and after graduation in 2011 joined CRI. Together with her colleague, K Manikandan, a Tamil Nadu native, who has been working with CRI in Beijing for the past one year, they have been working on a radio show on the recent visit of a 100-member Indian Youth Delegation to China.

“We interacted with the Tamil members in the delegation and many were surprised to see a Chinese girl speaking their (Tamil) language, and that too with such ease. For me, personally, it meant connecting with them on a personal level and they also felt happy about it,” Liao said.

Sanjana Konduru, a student of Women’s Christian College in Chennai, who part of the delegation said, “Though I had heard about the Tamil radio from China, I never could imagine its scale and reach, until now. I am now looking forward to hear the show (on the delegation).”

“We (Tamil service) broadcast to India every day. Now, we are trying to broadcast the show on the delegation visit soon,” Manikandan said. Established in 1941 during the civil-war era, CRI broadcasts in over 60 languages from its multi-storey headquarters in west Beijing. On December 3, the network marked it 73rd birth anniversary.

India announces 1 billion dollar line of credit for development of Russia's Far East

Quote:
India today announced a line of credit worth one Billion US dollars for the development of the Far East region of Russia.

Addressing the Plenary Session of 5th Eastern Economic Forum, EEF, in Vladivostok this evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said this announcement will prove to be a take-off point for India's 'Act Far East' policy.

Mr Modi said, this Russian region is full of resources which provide an opportunity for Russia and its friends.

The Prime Minister said that start-ups are India's strength and youth of India and Russia can work further with new technologies for development of both countries.

Mr Modi said that he firmly believes that the talent and professionalism of the Indian people will contribute to the development in the Far East region of Russia.

The Prime Minister said with the start of the proposed Vladivostok- Chennai sea route, the relations of both countries will be further strengthened. Mr Modi said, the relation between India & the Far East is age-old as India is the first country which opened its consulate in Vladivostok.

Mr. Modi said, India and Russia have taken their relations beyond the boundaries of government ties to people-to-people cooperation. He expressed happiness at the signing of more than 50 business agreement in Voldivostok at EEF platform.

Responding to a question on the issue of environmental conservation, the Prime Minister said, India is working for solar power production and looking at the possibility of turning India into a battery making hub.

He said, efficient battery production will not only be helpful for e-vehicles but it will also open the door for clean cooking in more than 250 million families in India.


The Prime Minister thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin for inviting him as the chief guest of EEF for his love for India.

Later, Mr Modi visited the annual International Jigoro Kano Judo Tournament, the main sporting event of the Eastern Economic Forum. Russian President Vladimir Putin accompanied the Prime Minister.

Earlier in the day, the Prime Minister visited the India Business Pavilion at the Eastern Economic Forum and launched the Indo-Russian Innovation Bridge, an online platform to promote joint innovations. This facility is meant to bridge the gap between Indian and Russian startup ecosystems.

Earlier today, the Prime Minister held bilateral meetings with the Prime Ministers of Japan and Malaysia and Mangolian President on the margins of EEF. Briefing newspersons, Foreign Secretary Vijaya Gokhale said both Mr Modi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stressed the importance of bilateral cooperation on economic matters and people to people contacts in the Indo-Pacific region.

The Foreign Secretary said both leaders decided to hold the first 2 plus 2 ministerial meetings of Foreign and Defence ministers of both the countries ahead of the annual bilateral summit in New Delhi in December this year.

The Prime Minister called on Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir bin Mohammad and Mongolian President Khaltmaagiin Battulga.

On the first day of his visit, the Prime Minister participated in the 20th Indian-Russia annual summit followed by a joint statement with Vladimir Putin. The two countries signed 15 agreements of mutual co-operation and both expressed satisfaction over the outcome of the summit.

The Prime Minister has since left for New Delhi after concluding his two-day visit to Vladivostok, Russia.

Before leaving for home, the Prime Minister described his visit to Vladivostok as productive. In a tweet, he said, the outcome of the visit will bring Russia and India closer.

PM Modi proposes new initiative to secure maritime domain in Indo-Pacific

Quote:
Bangkok, Nov 4 (PTI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday proposed a new initiative to create a safe and secure maritime domain in the Indo-Pacific, indicating India''s readiness to play a bigger role in the region where China has been expanding its military assertiveness.

Modi floated the idea of the Indo-Pacific Ocean''s initiative during his address at the 14th East Asia Summit, a premier forum in the Asia-Pacific region dealing with issues relating security and defence.

Apart from the 10 ASEAN member states, East Asia Summit includes India, China, Japan, Republic of Korea, Australia, New Zealand, United States and Russia.

The ASEAN’s current chair Thailand and Australia welcomed Modi''s proposal.

"The Prime Minister proposed an Indo-Pacific Ocean''s initiative to conserve and sustainably use the maritime domain and to make meaningful efforts to create a safe and secure maritime domain," said Vijay Thakur Singh, Secretary (East) in the Ministry of External Affairs.

"Focus areas of this initiative include creating partnerships among the interested states in several pillars, ranging from enhancing maritime security to preserving and sustainably using marine resources, building capacities as well as working together in trade and maritime transport," she said.

Singh said Australia has already indicated its interest in working with India to develop the initiative.

In his address, the prime minister also proposed an EAS seminar on maritime security in Chennai next year.

India has consistently been indicating that it was keen on playing a larger role in the Indo-Pacific region.

The US has also been pushing for a greater role for India in the Indo-Pacific in an effort to contain China''s growing clout in the region.

In November last year, India, the US, Australia and Japan gave shape to the long-pending “Quad” Coalition to develop a new strategy to keep the critical sea routes in the Indo-Pacific free of any influence.

Reflecting growing congruence of interests in the region, senior officials of the ‘Quad’ countries also held consultations on Monday on the situation in Indo-Pacific and supported an ASEAN-led mechanisms for the regional architecture for the region.
