The hallmark of the RIC dialogues is the fact that participants have conceptualised trilateral cooperation in ways that are very far-reaching. Many visionary ideas have come out of these conferences, some of which have been taken up by policymakers. These ideas may not have been implemented exactly as they were conceptualised but they definitely helped in opening new channels and scope for cooperative exercises.

The conference concluded with Prof. Alexey Maslov, expressing his thanks and announcing that in keeping with the past practice of rotation, the 19th conference would be hosted by the IFES, RAS and extended an invitation to the partner institutions, expressing the hope that it would take place with actual – not virtual – participation. Amb. Ashok K. Kantha concluded the conference by thanking Prof. Maslov for the invitation and with appreciation towards all the participants and the ICS organising team.
