The Pathfinder Foundation (PF) signed a Memorandum of Collaboration (MoC) with the Delhi Policy Group on September 12, providing opportunities for joint collaboration between the PF and the New Delhi based think-tank.

Representatives of the two think-tanks had a fruitful discussion during the visit of DPG Director General Ambassador, Hemanth K. Singh to Sri Lanka in early August.

During that meeting a decision was taken for collaboration between the two sides, for which purpose the two think-tanks agreed to enter in to a Memorandum of Collaboration (MoC).
