A combination of global political and economic factors helped Asia and the Gulf ‘rediscover’ their ties in the beginning of the 21st
century. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries adopted a ‘Look East’ policy, as a result of which India further consolidated
its age-old partnership with the region. Against the backdrop of this renewed ‘East-East camaraderie’, this book explores how growing
GCC-India economic ties could impact the future course of their relationship. It postulates that the stage is now set for the construction
of a strategic GCC-India partnership, including the evolution of a strategic role for India in the region.
