NEW DELHI: The Shangri-La Dialogue (SLD) starts in New Delhi on May 31. It is a ‘Track One’ diplomacy held every year by a think tank called IISS (International Institute for Strategic Studies). The Shangri-La Dialogue (SLD) is attended by defense ministers, permanent heads of ministries and military chiefs of 28 Asia-Pacific states.

The forum derives its name from the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore where its first meeting took place in 2002. The summit cultivates a community feeling among the global policymakers in areas of defense and security.  Government delegations make best use of The Shangri-La Dialogue as they also hold bilateral meeting with other delegations on the sidelines of the conference.
