PM Modi underlines 3Ts for resilient supply chains at Indo Pacific Economic Framework
While Speaking at the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) event in Tokyo, PM Narendra Modi said that the member countries must respect the pillars involved in the framework of their partnership. “There should be 3 pillars of Indo-Pacific Economic Framework – Trust, Timeliness, and Teamwork. These 3 pillars will ensure a strong, inclusive, and flexible Indo-Pacific partnership,” PM Modi said.
The IPEF seeks to strengthen economic partnership amongst participating countries with the objective of enhancing resilience, sustainability, inclusiveness, economic growth, fairness, and competitiveness in the Indo-Pacific region.
PM Modi said, “India has historically been at the center of trade flows in the Indo-Pacific region, having the world’s oldest commercial port at Lohtal in Gujarat.”
PM Modi also said that India is committed to a free, open, and inclusive Indo-Pacific region and believes that deepening economic engagement among partners is crucial for continued growth, peace, and prosperity. India is keen to collaborate with partner countries under the IPEF and work towards advancing regional economic connectivity, integration, and boosting trade and investment within the region.
