Officials of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), a geo-political and economic bloc, have met in New Delhi, India's capital, to discuss a wide range of regional issues, including boosting relations with India. 

The organisation and India are also expected to focus on how to improve economic and political ties with Myanmar, a country which has seen a recent wave of democratic reforms.
