    A Review of Indo-Swiss Trade: Opportunities for a Stable World Order

    Switzerland was one the very first friends of independent India. The two nations signed their ‘Treaty of Friendship and Establishment’ on August 14th, 1948 – an year after India’s Independence from the British rule, as they swore “perpetual peace and unalterable friendship” and also conferred the status of “most favoured foreign nation” on each other. Culturally and politically, even though placed in different contexts, India and Switzerland have had much in common. To begin with, both nations have had a history of handling diversity and the experience of a polity engendered by home-grown republics.

Thus, the traditions of democratic decision making have been native to both countries. Through the annals of history, both nations today have emerged as having the dual attributes of – (a) the strength to safeguard one’s own security and (b) a commitment towards global peace and non-aggression. The similarities in the historical evolution and shaping of the characters of both nations renders them as likely partners in an ever-changing international order. Read more.. […]
