Panel Details:

India is a key regional stakeholder which played a huge role through many post-war reconstruction and infrastructural initiatives in Afghanistan. Besides such initiatives like the Salma Dam and the construction of a new parliament building in Kabul for the Afghan government, Indo-Afghan ties have been furthered via people-to-people exchanges. That too, with many Afghan students pursuing higher education in India.
