Interview of Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh with RIA Novosti

Abstract:
Q 7 What in your opinion are the prospects for cooperation in such areas as science, high technologies, nanotechnology, and space?

Ans. Without doubt, there are excellent prospects. India already has extensive cooperation with Russia in the field of science and technology under the umbrella of the Integrated Long Term Program. This program has been in operation for 20 years, and has many achievements. The setting up of seven Joint Centers of Excellence is one example. Marketing of technologies is an important focus area for both our countries. We are planning to set up a Joint Technology Centre. Nanotechnology and bio-technology are two potential areas of special significance for future cooperation.

Our cooperation in the space sector dates back to the launch of the Indian satellite ‘Aryabhatta' in April 1975. Indian and Russian space agencies are cooperating in the joint development and use of the Russian satellite navigation system GLONASS, in a joint satellite project involving university students from both sides called YOUTHSAT, and through Indian participation in the Coronas Photon scientific mission. I am particularly excited about our joint mission for lunar exploration.
