Forty Years of Korea-India Diplomatic Relations and Economic Cooperation
2013 marks the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Korea (ROK) and India. This relationship,
based primarily on economic cooperation, has slowed down since the 2000s in contrast to other East Asian countries and India.
In particular, FDI from Korea to India has been losing its vigor, and now is the time to find a new breakthrough. This article
covers the economic cooperation between Korea and India in the aspects of trade, FDI and FTA. Support policies for mergers
and acquisitions (M&A), finance and infrastructure, in addition to Korea-India CEPA upgrade negations, are needed. Above all,
Korea-India summits should be regularized.
