Answer :

India occupies a unique position on the globe. It enjoys a unique proximity with Europe, Africa and Australia. The Indian landmass has a central location between East and West Asia.

The Deccan Peninsula helps India to establish easy contact with West Asia, East Africa and Europe from the Western coast and with South-East Asia, East Asia and Australia from the Eastern coast. India has the longest coastline on the Indian ocean. These geographical features provide India a significant edge in international trade.
