India to host EAS conference in Chennai 

The Ministry of External Affairs, in partnership with the govts of Australia and Indonesia, will organise the East Asia Summit Conference on Maritime Security Cooperation in Chennai from Feb 6-7.

The Conference is expected to serve as a platform for free and open dialogue among all the EAS partners on various issues of maritime security cooperation, and to come up with useful suggestions on tackling challenges in the maritime domain in a cooperative manner.

This conference is the fourth in a series of EAS Maritime Security Conferences organised by the Indian government -- the first conference was organised in New Delhi in November 2015, the second in Goa in November 2016 and the third in Bhubaneswar in June 2018.​

These sessions will be interactive in nature and more than 100 participants are expected to attend the Conference, including about 50 delegates nominated by the EAS participating countries.
