Twenty years ago, India launched its ‘Look East’ policy. For most of those 20 years, Myanmar’s isolation, mistrust between India and its neighbors and poor infrastructure connectivity hindered the development of links between South and Southeast Asia. With Myanmar’s tentative opening and improved relations between India and Bangladesh, an opportunity exists for India to boost trade and security ties with mainland and maritime Southeast Asia. And the United States, during President Barack Obama’s second term, is committed to rebalancing toward Asia, with India playing a pivotal role.
Please join us for the preliminary launch of our Enhancing India-ASEAN Connectivity report's key findings. Ted Osius, Senior State Department Visiting Fellow in the CSIS Sumitro and Wadhwani Chairs and lead author of the report, will present its executive summary and key recommendations. The full report will be released later in June.
