Abstract

For many years, India has been a relative outsider to the Asian economic region. Despite its geographic proximity to the fast-growing economies of East Asia, its trade and investment ties with the region remain under-developed. Nor has India been an active player in the intergovernmental architecture for economic cooperation. It is absent from many of the region’s major economic organisations, and is not densely embedded in network of bilateral free trade agreements (FTAs) which now dominate the Asian trade system. As Asia has for several decades being the most dynamic region of the global economy, India is arguably missing the economic opportunities that would come from deeper engagement with its eastern neighbours.
