MEA says Raisina Dialogue 2021 to go fully digital

External affairs ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi t said, the organisers of Raisina Dialogue 2021 have decided to host this year’s edition as a fully digital event, instead of the hybrid event planned earlier. 

The Observer Research Foundation and the External Affairs ministry, which jointly organise the Raisina Dialogue, had earlier planned to hold the event with limited in-person attendance of around 100 people, including foreign dignitaries, in New Delhi scheduled to be held next week.  

Mr Bagchi said, the decision to move to a fully digital version was made as a measure of abundant caution, given the Covid-19 situation in various parts of the world. The spokesperson said, it underlines the strong sense of responsibility that the organisers feel towards the safety of all those involved with the dialogue.
