Singapore Symposium 2012 Papers – 2
The paper concentrates on the ASEAN-India relations that intensified when the then Indian government initiated India’s Look East Policy in the early 1990’s. Initially the engagement was mainly economic, but the next government added a security dimension to it. The 2004 agreement on an ASEAN-India Partnership for Peace, Progress and Shared Prosperity envisaged a multi-faceted co-operation program, but the implementation of the Action Plan has not been fully satisfactory. For the ASEAN-India relations to be elevated to a higher level such as a strategic partnership, there should be new impetus.
