The up-gradation of the relationship into a Strategic Partnership in 2012 was a natural progression to the ground covered since India became a Sectoral Partner of the ASEAN in 1992, Dialogue Partner in 1996 and Summit Level Partner in 2002. There are, in total, 30 Dialogue Mechanisms between India and ASEAN, cutting across various sectors..
India’s relationship with ASEAN is a key pillar of our foreign policy and the foundation of our Act East Policy.
ASEAN and India have finalised a list of priority areas for the period of 2016-2018, which would contribute towards successful trade investments and overall development.
