“The aim of the event was to sensitise all the ambassadors/high commissioners and impart them with the information about advance research and recent developments in Ayurveda,” the statement said.

“These personalities can play a key role in exploring the possibilities of establishing age-old Ayurveda, a traditional medical system, in different countries. It is hoped that the goal of achieving propagation and recognition of Ayurveda across the globe would be achieved through this symposium,” it added.

The Ministry of AYUSH is committed to promote Ayurveda and traditional systems of medicine globally and has taken many initiatives for strengthening quality standards for AYUSH services as well as Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and Homoeopathy (ASU&H) products.
