India News, a monthly news journal, is a new initiative of the Embassy started in April 2009. It covers news and developments during the month on India´s foreign relations, including with Mexico and Belize, on India - political, economic, commercial, technological, academic, cultural, sports, and others of general interest, and relevant information pertaining to this Mission and its activities.
India and Mexico, despite being located at the two ends of the globe, have much in common, by way of similarities of history, cultural heritage, geographical features, mindsets, attitudes and values, and their bilateral relations are characterised by strengthening bonds of friendship, growing cooperation, expanding commercial & economic ties, and regular active consultations, all underpinned by mutual empathy and understanding. India´s relations with Belize, as representative countries of Central America, are similarly close. Yet, the constraints of the physical distance, though eroded now, remain to be reckoned with, particularly for people-to-people contacts. The numbers of tourists and other travellers in both directions are growing rapidly, but are still small for our populous countries. There is still a fairly wide information gap, posing a major obstacle for further strengthening and expanding of these friendly ties to their potential. This new initiative, the India News, is another step towards bridging the gap.
Readers are invited to send their valuable comments and suggestions, and to let their colleagues, friends and families know about India News. The Embassy would include all those in the mailing list who evince interest.
