Our center is a non-partisan organization working in the direction of building ties between countries in Caucasus and from across Asia, with particular focus in South Asia. We bring in a fresh Asian perspective of looking at the market related developments and opportunities in broad Caucasus region, whilst considering the 21st century as the ‘Asian Century’. We uphold and promote the geo-strategic importance of the Caucasus region, falling at the crossroads of Asia and Europe, on all international forums/ conferences where we participate. We are registered as a non-profit body in New Delhi, India, and have team members and supporters in different countries worldwide, such as the US, U.K., Russia, Japan, Malaysia and so on.
