"Narendra Modi pays tributes to Dr. S Radhakrishnan"
"Honouring of teachers is a matter of immense pride for the state: Narendra Modi"
"That there is no age limit as far as learning is concerned…it is important that there be a student in every teacher: CM"

On the morning of Thursday 5th September 2013 Shri Narendra Modi honoured the best teachers of Gujarat on the occasion of Teacher’s Day. He congratulated the teachers for their wonderful work and spoke about the importance of teachers in the life of a child. Shri Modi remarked that moving from the era of teaching, we are now in the era of learning and that we must think of ways through which we can make our children learn more. He added that the strength of learning is more important than the strength of teaching.

The Chief Minister paid rich tributes to former President of India Dr. S Radhakrishnan and said, “We have seen many Presidents, Prime Ministers, Ministers etc but some people inspire for generations to come. Dr. Radhakrishnan is one such stalwart. We do not remember him for the files he signed or the decisions he took but we remember him as an excellent teacher.”

He recalled that earlier, this function of honouring teachers was held at a very small scale and the Chief Minister would not even be present on the occasion. But, this has changed in the last decade. Shri Modi remarked that the honouring of teachers is a matter of immense pride for the state and that it should be held on a larger scale.

Shri Modi shared that there are some fresh ideas in his mind regarding the teaching community. He said that the Government is looking at increasing the scale of this event as well as the prize money, which has become imperative considering the fact that the Rupee is in the ICU! 

The Chief Minister expressed joy that the teachers are doing great things such as caring for the specially abled and shared that it is good to see teachers reading a lot to satisfy the intellectual curiosity of the students.

At the invitation of the President of the European Council Mr. Charles Michel, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the India-EU Leaders’ Meeting today.

The meeting was held in a hybrid format with the participation of leaders of all the 27 EU Member States as well as the President of the European Council and the European Commission. This is the first time that the EU hosted a meeting with India in the EU+27 format. The meeting was the initiative of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

During the meeting, the leaders expressed their desire to further strengthen the India-EU Strategic Partnership based on a shared commitment to democracy, fundamental freedoms, rule of law and multilateralism. They exchanged views on three key thematic areas: i) foreign policy and security; ii) COVID-19, climate and environment; and iii) trade, connectivity and technology. They discussed forging closer cooperation on combating the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recovery, tackling climate change, and reforming multilateral institutions. India appreciated the prompt assistance provided by the EU and its member states to combat its second COVID wave.

The leaders welcomed the decision to resume negotiations for balanced and comprehensive free trade and investment agreements. Negotiations on both the Trade and Investment Agreements will be pursued on parallel tracks with an intention to achieve early conclusion of both agreements together. This is a major outcome which will enable the two sides to realise the full potential of the economic partnership. India and the EU also announced dedicated dialogues on WTO issues, regulatory cooperation, market access issues and supply chain resilience, demonstrating the desire to deepen and further diversify economic engagement.

India and the EU launched an ambitious and comprehensive ‘Connectivity Partnership’ which is focused on enhancing digital, energy, transport and people-to-people connectivity. The Partnership is based on the shared principles of social, economic, fiscal, climate and environmental sustainability, and respect for international law and commitments. The Partnership will catalyse private and public financing for connectivity projects. It will also foster new synergies for supporting connectivity initiatives in third countries, including in the Indo-Pacific.

India and the EU leaders reiterated their commitment to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and agreed to strengthen joint efforts for mitigation, adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change, as well as providing means of implementation including finance in the context of COP26. India welcomed the EU’s decision to join CDRI.

India and the EU also agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation on digital and emerging technologies such as 5G, AI, Quantum and High-Performance Computing including through the early operationalization of the Joint Task Force on AI and the Digital Investment Forum.

The leaders noted with satisfaction the growing convergences on regional and global issues, including counterterrorism, cybersecurity and maritime cooperation. The leaders acknowledged the importance of a free, open, inclusive and rules-based Indo-Pacific and agreed to closely engage in the region, including in the context of India’s Indo-Pacific Ocean’s Initiative and the EU’s new strategy on the Indo-Pacific.

Coinciding with the Leaders’ Meeting, an India-EU Business Roundtable was organised to highlight the avenues for cooperation in climate, digital and healthcare. A finance contract of Euro 150 million for the Pune Metro Rail Project was signed by the Ministry of Finance, Government of India, and European Investment Bank.

India-EU Leaders Meeting has set a significant milestone by providing a new direction to the Strategic Partnership and giving a fresh impetus for implementing the ambitious India-EU Roadmap 2025 adopted at the 15th India-EU Summit held in July 2020.
