Indo-Pacific


Ajit Kumar AJIT KUMARWISDOM IAS, New Delhi.


The Indo-Pacific is a term coined by the U.S. for the Indian and Pacific Oceans region, as a natural geographical region, not a strategic one, while United States Secretary of Defense  called the Indo-Pacific a “priority theatre” and a “subset of [America’s] broader security strategy” for his military command, now renamed the Indo-Pacific Command.
‘Indo-Pacific’ has lately entered the geo-strategic discourse as a substitute for the more established term ‘Asia-Pacific’. The Indo-Pacific is an integrated theatre that combines the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean, and the land masses that surround them. Even though it is still an evolving concept, most analysts see it as an idea that captures the shift in power and influence from the West to the East.
