AMB RAJIV BHATIA HAS GIVEN FOLLOWING DIMENSIONS OF NEW AEP 1. The focus on tangible action and concrete results is inherent in the change from 'Look' to 'Act' 2. While ASEAN continues to be the central pillar or core of the policy, South Block is investing much more (than before) in deepening cooperation with the extended region, comprising in particular US, Japan, Australia and South Korea, in order to cope with a marked increase in China's assertiveness. 3. Consequently, the third feature is boldness on India's part in the security, defence and strategic domain. 4. India might become even more cordial and cooperative with ASEAN, but hard-nosed too. At the first summit itself, the Indian PM called for conducting 'a review of our free trade agreement.' A strong push is being given to negotiations for the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) with the aim to conclude them in 2016. Besides, higher dedication was promised for creating "the trident" of commerce, culture and connectivity. 5. The new government indicated clearly that India's North Eastern Region (NER) would receive a higher priority in the implementation of AEP.
