India-Central Asia partnership: moving for regional development and connectivity

As a part of the “extended neighbourhood”, Central Asia commands India’s acute attention. Central Asian Economies (CAEs) and India are becoming more dynamic economies in terms of their growth performance and there are opportunities for cooperation in enhancing trade, and in energy, social and physical infrastructure development. The paper discusses the challenges faced by the CAEs and their scope of development in the context of Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development Goals. It highlights the need for prioritizing development, with focus on building resilient economies and collective governance. Lastly, attention is drawn towards the immense scope for cooperation between India and Central Asia through cultural ties and education.
