  • In the body mention factors that increases significance of the region such as mineral wealth, connectivity, security and  geopolitical rivalry etc.
  • In the next part mention Taliban regime in Afghanistan and implications for India. In suggestions mention need to form network of relationships of the regional states, leveraging membership of BRICS and SCO, cooperation of Russia and China, working on connectivity projecta etc. 
  • Conclude by mentioning that India’s invitation to the leaders should not be a stand alone event and outreach should translate into something concrete.
