JGU is a global university with strong research focus and evident research strength in global south. It has established more than 40 research centers. The Center for India-China Studies is one of the most dynamic and multi-disciplinary ones. Centre for India China studies is the outcome of my varied professional and social experiences in Hong Kong, mainland China and also from my observations in relation to the insufficient engagement among the two largest developing nations. Despite the natural border between the two countries, India and China relations is a history of thousands of years of cultural and scientific exchange. Despite many challenges being faced by both the countries, 21st century India and China have vast space and untapped potential to re-imagine their relations. I am delighted to say that CICS has created several intellectual platforms, such as India-China Lunch Talk, India-China Seminar and India-China Forum to engage academia, policymakers, practitioners from India and China for constructive dialogues and insightful discussions. It has been very passionate in bridging the youths from both countries for new imagination of India-China future. I believe it will soon become a world-class think-tank on India-China studies and south-south cooperation.
