Dhaka Global Dialogue begins Nov 11

  • Print
UNB, Dhaka :
Global diverse voices across sectors and geographies will come together here at the three-day 'Dhaka Global Dialogue' from November 11 to discover new ideas and propose new solutions that serve as an emerging human-centric world order out of the Indo-Pacific.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is likely to inaugurate the dialogue at the InterContinental Dhaka.
The event will be co-hosted by the Observer Research Foundation (ORF), India and the Bangladesh Institute of International and Strategic Studies (BIISS), Bangladesh, which seeks to catalyse conversations on what is fast emerging as one of the most important and dynamic political and growth geographies of the world, according to organisers.
This two-and-a-half day dialogue will look at both the emerging regional and global political order and the associated institutional framework.
It will focus on discovering a human-first growth and development policy paradigm.
This unique platform will convene over 150 delegates from over 50 countries to join the brightest minds in Bangladesh to discuss, ideate, and debate the most pressing global imperatives.
The Indo-Pacific region is already at the forefront of the global response to two important processes, according to organisers.
Bangladesh's transition by the power of example will implicate the dimensions of growth for the entire region and beyond, according to ORF.
Similarly, it says, the politics of the Bay of Bengal and the larger Indo-Pacific region will dynamically shape the emerging political order in this century.
Bangladesh, organisers said, will be one of key actors of the Asian century and therefore creating an 'ideas arena' to discuss key developments and challenges in Dhaka is an acknowledgement of its role.
