This publication is the outcome of a Government of West Bengal-funded research project on Indo-Vietnam Relations undertaken at the Netaji Institute For Asian Studies, Kolkata. It unfolds the evolution of a unique partnership between India and Vietnam, a relationship moulded by historical, diplomatic and geo-strategic factors. The study also underlines the promising role that West Bengal can play in further enriching this constructive bilateralism. The authors convincingly argue that Indo-Vietnamese strategic partnership – buttressed by greater economic and cultural connectivity – is of crucial significance in the context of New Delhi’s Act East Policy. The work should attract the attention of both the scholars of international relations and diplomats.
