1. India-Myanmar-Thailand Highway: Strategic Dimensions 22.6.16 http://www.indiandefencereview.com/news/imt-highway-strategic-dimensions/
 
My take – having been to Moreh and spent days in Manipur hope the highway gets started at the earliest. Highway could be gateway to Myanmar and Thailand for Indian Tourists. Once road route starts and more Indian discover this route, it will promote tourism to the beautiful state of Manipur big time. Some former army guys have started a Travel company, they have just started organising customised trips to Thailand thru Moreh. As of today road Imphal to Moreh in bad shape. Asian Highway 1 is open. Bad stretch after Kalewa to Monywa or Bagan.
The day VOLVO passenger buses start from Imphal to Thailand would be a great day for India's Act Easy Policy. It will also increase exports, legally to Myanmar.

The reality is that the medieval Taliban will neither be defeated nor seek peace until their Pakistani sanctuaries are eliminated. No counterterrorism campaign has ever succeeded in a country when the militants have found refuge in another.'

8. Indian Naval Sales – The Cautious Emergence of a New Supplier 22.6.16 by Sanjay Badri-Maharaj
However, India becoming the primary supplier of naval vessels to Mauritius is a significant step as previous purchases by the island nation have been from sources as diverse as the former Soviet Union and Canada. By signing a contract in 2013 to build two 105m OPVs for Sri Lanka, GSL has in one stroke established India as the key supplier of Sri Lanka's most modern surface assets. India has also sought to enter the Vietnamese market and has extended a $100 million line of credit to that country for the procurement of patrol boats
