Miller Publishes Op-Ed on India’s Relationship with Latin American Countries

Manjari Chatterjee Miller, currently a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and on leave from the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University where she is an Associate Professor of International Relations, published an op-ed in Hindustan Times on India’s foreign policy in Latin America. This is the thirteenth of Miller’s monthly columns in Hindustan Times.

In the article, titled “India’s rocky path in Latin America,” Miller discusses India’s evolving relationship with Latin American countries (LAC) and makes the argument for increased involvement in the region. Indian leaders have a poor track record of making visits to Latin America compared to other competing great powers such as China. While Latin America offers vast economic opportunities for India, Miller argues “Indian politicians and bureaucrats made little effort to develop close diplomatic and cultural ties that could in turn deepen the economic relationship,” and if India will not make the effort then neither will LAC.

The full column can be read on the Hindustan Times‘ website.
