About GPS

The Global Partnership Summit (GPS) has evolved from the India Japan Global Partnership (IJGP) initiative and is a platform to integrate ideologies, ideas, initiatives, projects, processes, people and policies. It allows for global partners to share knowledge, expertise and resources and work towards a common objective of establishing an Alternative Development Model (ADM) framework. Through core values such as co-operation, collaboration and inclusivity, GPS aims to establish, models of development that will focus on empowerment and sustainability. GPS intends to converge the needs of today into the viability of tomorrow, thus becoming a formidable platform to take forward the mission of an all-encompassing, holistic development framework.
