The intensification of trade exchanges alongside the identification of major security threats has turned the Indian Ocean into one of the most important geographical spaces. The emergence of China has developed growing strategic disputes within the regional powers. Although they defend different objectives, India and Australia have been seeking ways to improve their presence and focusing on possible partnerships based on shared perceptions and common interests. The reality of a Canberra New Delhi axis remains limited considering the different visions the two protagonists have of it. On the Indian side, the exchanges with Australia are unbalanced due to the vision of the Indian Ocean as a strategic extension of the peninsula. On the Australian side, the subtle balance between strong economic and trade relations with Beijing and reaffirmed political and military relations with Washington justify a new “front” strategy in which India appears to be just one actor among others.
