The Act East Policy of India, announced in 2014 presented some significant differences from the previous Look East Policy. It aimed to look further east, towards the Pacific and beyond Southeast Asia. However, India's exit from the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) raises questions regarding where India's Act East Policy is really headed to. This paper reviews current aspects of the Act East Policy and makes an effort to point out current avenues – particularly focusing on ASEAN and Australia and their importance within the Policy.
