This project furthers Mission Goal 4 and sub-objective by supporting U.S-India security cooperation in the Indo Pacific. It also supports Mission Objective and seeks to encourage India to play a leading role in supporting and promoting stability, connectivity, and maintenance of the international rules-based order in the Indo Pacific region and beyond. By expanding networking opportunities for Indian journalists with their counterparts in mainland Southeast Asia, and their peers in Cambodia, Indian journalists will increase their understanding of the unique development challenges in that country and pass that understanding to the Indian public through their reporting. This project will also strengthen journalism networks across the Indo Pacific region in support of the Indo Pacific strategy.
