“Will help shape India’s journey to developed India…”: Jaishankar at valedictory function of IFS officer trainees


External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Saturday attended the valedictory ceremony of Indian Foreign Service Officer Trainees and Bhutanese diplomats of the 2023 batch here in the national capital.

External Affairs Minister discussed the emerging scenario, its challenges and opportunities with the IFS officer trainees and wished them all the best for their future.

“It is a pleasure to participate in the valedictory ceremony of the Indian Foreign Service Officer Trainees and Bhutanese diplomats of the 2023 batch. From the Amrit Kaal generation, they will help shape India’s journey to a developed India,” Jaishankar posted on social media platform X.

“Discussed with them the emerging scenario, its challenges and opportunities and changing practices. Welcome him to diplomatic life and wish him the best in the times to come.

Earlier in the day, Jaishankar also attended the launch of the Arbitration Bar of India at the Bharat Mandapam at Pragati Maidan in the national capital.

He said ‘Mediate in India!’ This should be a natural accompaniment to ‘Make in India’, he said, adding that the Modi government recognizes the importance of high-quality mediation.

“Delighted to participate in the launch of the Arbitration Bar of India. ‘Arbitration in India!’ As our economy grows and the nation globalizes, it should be a natural companion to @makeinindia. The Modi government recognizes the importance of high-quality arbitration as it improves ease of doing business,” the External Affairs Minister said at the exchange.

“#TeamMEA is doing its job. Confident that today’s inauguration is one of the many contributions of the legal community to a developed India,” he said.

During his address he highlighted the positive aspects of arbitration and said that arbitration promotes economic development.

“We all know it as an effective and equitable method of resolving disputes and providing a streamlined alternative to often very complex judicial processes. So whether it is in the domestic or international arena, arbitration certainly inspires confidence, it promotes economic growth, and it upheld the rule of law,” Jaishankar said.

“In a world where time is truly of the essence and certainty is paramount, arbitration has been recognized as the cornerstone of modern dispute resolution. Now, it is particularly relevant for us to recognize this in India at a time when there is rapid economic growth in a global environment. If we are to reap full benefits from our 3D dividend – democracy, demography and demand – high quality intermediation is a significant factor in attracting FDI,” he said.
