Business Daily (Kenya) - - IDEAS & DEBATE -

In a rare high-level en­gage­ment by In­dia in an in­creas­ingly piv­otal re­gion, Pres­i­dent Ram Nath Kovind is on a visit to Bul­garia and the Czech Repub­lic.

Long seen as an area of com­pet­ing Rus­sian and west­ern in­ter­ests, cen­tral and east­ern Europe (CEE) has not al­ways fea­tured promi­nently in In­dia’s for­eign pol­icy agenda. De­spite trips to 11 west­ern Euro­pean coun­tries since 2014, Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi is yet to visit cen­tral or east­ern Europe. In part, this is be­cause eco­nomic and peo­ple-to-peo­ple links re­main weak.
