Central Asia is gradually gaining prominence among policy makers and academia in India particularly due to its location, resources and rich cultural heritage. In recent years there have been growing consultations among Central Asian leaders and consequently cooperation has increased, especially on cross border movement of people and goods. Multiple initiatives have been launched by countries in the region to improve infrastructure and efficient transportation through strengthened connectivity links. There is growing mutual interest among scholars in India and Central Asia, and ICWA holds the India-Central Asia academic dialogue to explore possibilities of deepening cooperation for common gains.
