New Delhi, Feb 20 - Former prime minister Manmohan Singh Friday recalled the wide ranging contributions that former diplomat G. Parthasarathi made in various spheres.

He made the comments while dedicating the RIS Conference Hall as the G. Parthasarathi Conference Hall at the Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS) here.

Manmohan Singh underlined that G.P. had the vision that RIS should work as a leading and effective global think tank for developing countries to promote greater South-South economic development cooperation which must always remain the guiding principle for the work of RIS.

His commitment both to the pursuit of excellence and the reduction of social inequalities was so transparent that it left an indelible impression on all those who came in contact with him, said a press release.

RIS chairman Shyam Saran recalled the contributions made by RIS that have impacted policy-making process not only in India but in the developing world at large.

He said this was particularly relevant due to the fact that RIS was set up precisely to undertake analytical research on various international and developmental issues articulating the view-point of the developing world.

RIS director general Sachin Chaturvedi recalled the contributions of G. Parthasarathi and the inspiration that he had provided to researchers who have stayed on in RIS despite temptations to work elsewhere.
