Chennai-Vladivostok sea route made India’s effort to counter China’s OBOR
14 September 2017 Current Affairs: India is planning to launch major connectivity initiative, connecting Chennai with key Russian port Vladivostok via sea route with an aim to harness natural resources from Northeast Asia and Western Pacific region.

The proposed maritime route can be transformed into a corridor that could juxtapose with Indo-Japan Pacific to Indian Ocean Corridor to counter China’s Maritime Silk Route (MSR) under Border Road Initiative (BRI) which connect entire South East Asia through road, shipping and rail links.

India was the first country to establish resident Consulate in Vladivostok in 1992. India’s current engagement with the region is limited to isolated pockets such as Irkut Corporation in Irkutsk where Mig and Sukhoi aircraft are built and over $6 billion worth of investments by ONGC Videsh Limited.
