6th edition of the Indian Leaders Programme

Five people took part in this edition, focused on water management and held in Madrid, Valencia, Murcia and Almería from July 9 to July 13 | Report: 6th Indian Leaders Programme 2018

The Indian Leaders Programme is, along with the Forum and the SICF Award, one of the main events organised by the Spain India Council Foundation on a regular basis.

Through the Programme, SICF invites several experts in a specific area to visit Spain for a week. Thanks to meetings and technical visits, the participants get in contact with Spanish companies, institutions, public figures, experts and political representatives.

This gives them a chance to share knowledge, explain areas of potential and analyse challenges and opportunities in the two countries, creating paths for communication and knowledge with a view to strengthening Spain-India relations.

The Programme also seeks to provide participants with a broader overview of Spain’s economic, social and political situation, given that it is all-important for the two countries to get to know one another in more general terms in order to be able to cooperate in specific areas.

This time, the Indian Leaders Programme focused on water management and invited five participants to visit Madrid, Valencia, Murcia and Almería from July 9 to 13.

Participants:

- Shri. R.K. Gupta. Chairman cum Managing Director (CMD) WAPCOS Ltd.

- Dr. M. Dinesh Kumar. B-Tech, M.E., Ph.D. Executive Director, Institute for Resource Analysis and Policy (IRAP)
