6 3. Workshop Sessions 30th May During the first day, there were four main presentations held and number of questions and comments after them. Prof. Żukrowska in her introductory speech has asked participants several general but crucial questions concerning the relations between the EU and India: What is known in India about the EU? What is a role of the EU in India s development? Can India profit from the EU-strategic partnership? How? In what areas? Can India play a specific role in the region? What is/can be a role of Poland in shaping the EU-India strategic partnership? Each of the three presentations given by Prof. Singh, Prof. Jain and Ph.D. student Aleksandra Galek tried to answer some of the questions raised and point at new issues for further consideration and research. Prof. Singh analyzed the trade and investment cooperation between India and the EU. He showed that although the value of imports, exports and foreign direct investments is increasing, it is overall still below its potential. The second presentation, made by Prof. Jain was a deeper analysis of the strategic partnership introduced in In his opinion, once you analyze the prospects of future relations between two entities, you have to consider at least some of issues like: a lack of coherent definition of what exactly is strategic partnership with the EU; difficult and complex nature of political dialogue within EU-27; mismatch of interests between the EU and India concerning terrorism; the major role played by China in the European policy towards Asia and India s obsession with the US. Considering the above mentioned facts, the cooperation

7 between India and the EU will concentrate firstly more on soft security issues and particularly strengthening economic cooperation than on the hard security problems. It will be interesting to follow the process of negotiations and final implementation of the comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between India and the EU. Aleksandra Galek in her presentation described the recent changes in the diplomatic practices of India and the EU which may have crucial impact on the future FTA. The process of economization of diplomacy, although not a new phenomenon, attracted so far not so much attention. If India and the EU are to deepen their economic cooperation, they will both need to dedicate more efforts in order to stimulate all their diplomats public, commercial, business, NGOs to coherent upgrading the Indo-European relations. The discussion which took place between and after the presentation concerned more problems related to the strategic partnership. The workshop participants discussed inter alias the possibilities of the future Union between India and the EU, energy cooperation in South Asia, Poland s experience in development and lessons which India can learn from that process.

8 4. Workshop Sessions 1st June The second day of the workshop brought further interesting presentations of the panelists and interesting and fruitful discussion between all the participants. Firstly, Prof. Katarzyna Żukrowska introduced everybody to the more and more important element shaping the relations between the EU and India one where India s advantage is well recognized in the world and still increasing - services. Prof. Żukrowska compared the strategy of services development in India, China and Poland and pointed at those characteristics of India s strategy which decide of their global success as services exporter. Further liberalization and institutional building have to kept in mind by India s policy makers when assuring future development of India. Ambassador Anil Wadhwa in his interesting and comprehensive presentation adhering to historical background tackled the problems of India and the EU relations from the diplomatic perspective. Beside the information on different projects which are implemented - Network for Renewable Energy Research- RENET, ICT for Cross Cultural Dissemination, Cross Cultural Logistic Network, Open Cultures, Cultural Transfer Between India And Germany, Austria, India News in Europe Programme, e-safety Cooperation, Ambassador Wadhwa shared with the workshop s participants some of his experiences during his stay in Poland. A kind of continuation of diplomatic atmosphere was a presentation made by Krzysztof Dębnicki a representative of Polish Ministry for Foreign Affairs. He showed us how the bilateral relations between Poland and India developed from the time just after

9 the end of the 2nd World War up today. Despite some of obsolete clichés which still exist in the relations between two countries, the governments are more and more devoted to use professional tools of modern diplomacy in order to fight with such clichés and establish better relations. Barbara Despiney has also put more emphasis on historical developments in the relations between India and the whole Central and Eastern Europe. Apart from China and USA mentioned in the previous presentations, she added another puzzle to the system Russia with its importance for further policy shaping in Asia. Finally, Beata Jagiełło from WSE even further increased the group of countries from the India s neighbourhood and brought to the discussion the security problems of the Middle East and South Asia and the situation in the countries like Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

17 8. Conclusions The international workshop The EU India: The problems of strategic partnership and its significance for transformations in the world system was a forum where junior and senior scholars attempted to discuss a comprehensive project of EU - India strategic partnership. This project requires a complex and multidimensional analysis of resources, capacities and opportunities for its adequate assessment and implementation and the workshop could bring only a small input to this analysis. However, even such an attempt is important for bringing more understanding between the two sides and developing more interests in the topic.
