Summary/Abstract: The Indo-Pacific, which refers the maritime space stretching from the Indian Ocean to the Western Pacific, surrounding Asia and Eastern Africa, is a relatively new geopolitical concept (re)coined by Indian Captain Dr. Gurpreet Singh Khurana in 2007, attributing to the growing intimacy between India and Japan.1Viewed geopolitically, while the geographical location has a determining power over state policies, it is parallelly seen the political interests shape the perception of geography. In this context, all regions are constructs and they are generally defined by states in line with their own purposes. On the basis of such this geopolitical perspective, the Indo-Pacific concept implies the extended AsiaPacific region across the Indian Ocean in favour of primarily India, the United States and Japan in the face of China’s rise.
