India and Southeast Asian countries share a strong civilisational connect. India’s relationship with Southeast Asia is continued to be shaped by the changing geo-political environment. India’s engagement with the Southeast Asia is deeply rooted in culture, commerce and connectivity. Both highly value friendship and mutual trust. The relationship between them has truly become multidimensional and has scored an impressive performance over time at bilateral and regional levels.

Based on a conference organised by the Indian Council of World Affairs (ICWA) on 20-21 July 2022 to commemorate the thirty years of the ASEAN-India relations, this book sheds light on changing profile of the India-Southeast Asia relations and underlines the desire of the Southeast Asian countries and India to diversify and further strengthen the relations in the challenging times. This book is an important companion for the policymakers, academia, students of international relations and economics, diplomats and the general readership as well.
