The most significant initiative made by India's Narendra Modi regime is the focus on neighbouring countries and major Asian powers coupled with an emphasis on the two decades old Look East policy. Asia being the major focus area of his foreign policy, Modi and his Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj chose several Asian countries for their initial bilateral visits.
