This chapter discusses India's role in Central Asia. Indian policymakers and analysts believe that the Central Asian region is important because of old cultural and civilization linkages, as well as its strategic location, energy resources, and trade and economic opportunities. Indeed, developing political, economic, and energy partnerships has been the focus of India's “extended neighborhood” policy in the region so far. Moreover, the growing importance of China and Afghanistan in Central Asia has increased its strategic significance for India considerably. Therefore, Indian policymakers seek to expand and implement its recently announced “Connect Central Asia” policy which aims to strengthen India's political, securitization, economic, and cultural connections with the region.

Keywords:   India, Central Asia, Indian policy makers, extended neighborhood policy, Connect Central Asia policy
