Central Asia is a strategically and economically important region for India.  Among the five countries of the region, India enjoys a strategic partnership and shares a crucial relationship with Uzbekistan, the most populous Central Asian country.  The existing bilateral engagement has flowed naturally from long standing historical, cultural and civilizational ties. Bilateral cooperation runs the gamut from trade and investment, education and civil aviation all the way to tourism, science and technology, telecommunications, agriculture and IT. Alongside this exists a deepening military relationship, partly driven by a common concern about terrorism and regional stability. Uzbekistan was instrumental in India acceding to the Ashgabat Agreement in early 2018. Uzbekistan, itself a source of uranium, has supported India’s candidature for Nuclear Suppliers Group. Fresh elements have emerged in the partnership with the assumption of power by President Shavkat Mirziyoyev in late 2016. 

Prime Minister Modi visited Tashkent twice over the last 3 years and also met President Mirziyoyev at the SCO Summit in Qingdao, China in June, 2018. With the first state visit of Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev to India in October, 2018 serving as a backdrop, the two governments can be expected to provide a strong impetus to the existing bilateral and multilateral partnership between the two countries.

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
