The European Union and India will finally hold the bilateral summit next Wednesday, July 15th, which they had planned in March last year, but which had to be finally canceled due to measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

The appointment is finally videoconferenced, and the European bloc is represented by the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, and the head of the Community Executive, Ursula von der Leyen, while representing India, its Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.

The meeting will inevitably be impacted by the health and socio-economic impact of the pandemic, which has more than 767,000 infections in India, while the EU is in a de-escalation phase as it begins to slow its progression.
