This lectures series is an initiative of  Dr Juan Alfredo Pinto Saavedra, Ambassador of Colombia in New Delhi. The lectures are being held in a dozen universities of Colombia as per the programme below.

Dr Juan Alfredo himself is one of the speakers. He will speak on India- Colombia bilateral relations. Dr Gopal, the renowned scholar from India will talk on Gandhian thought and the solutions to the twenty first century problems. Dr Soraya Caro Vargas will lecture on " India- Latin America integration in the context of International value chain"

This is the first time that India gets such a big exposure in so many Colombian universities. Ambassador Juan Alfredo has taken India-Colombia relations to a new level with his deep interest in India and solid credentials in Colombia. With his background as a businessman, Vice Minister in the Colombian government, professor, economist and writer, he has reached out to and connected Indian and Colombian businessmen, academics, artists and policy makers. He has brought many Colombian cultural troupes to India and organized visits of business delegations. He has persuaded Indian investors to focus on Colombia, which has become the hottest investment destination in Latin America. He has made valuable contribution in making Colombia as the second largest destination of Indian exports (with almost a billion dollars of exports in 2011) in South America.

Dr Juan Alfredo has been complemented in his pioneering work by his wife Dr Soraya who is currently doing a PhD in Indira Gandhi University in New Delhi on Latin America- India relations.
