India has come a long way in making itself a key player in Southeast Asian security and economic equilibrium through the Look East Policy that launched in the early 1990s. For most Southeast Asian countries India is a potential counterweight to China and an economic option. Besides establishing strong institutional linkages with ASEAN and ASEAN-led regional multilateral frameworks, India has steadily intensified economic interactions through free trade agreements with ASEAN and with several member countries bilaterally with a focus on building strong connectivity to the region. Simultaneously, New Delhi has also forged numerous defense and security cooperation arrangements with most countries in the region. Given Southeast Asia’s centrality to East Asia and due to its rapidly rising strategic and economic stakes, India is likely to step up its engagement.
