Building the India-Japan Partnership: Strategic Compulsions and Indo-Pacific Imperatives

Books & Monographs December, 2023

Over the past two decades, Japan and India have witnessed a transformative shift in bilateral ties that has seeped into their already officially established “Special Strategic and Global Partnership.” However, even as this growth remains unprecedented, the need for deepening their three-tiered partnership—bilateral, regional, and global— on multilateral concerns such as traditional and non-traditional security, defense, trade and investment, energy, technological innovation, and economy has never been more urgent, nor the scope so immense.

This publication reviews diverse aspects of the ever-growing India-Japan comprehensive partnership in four key areas—namely strategic essence; trade, investment, and economic security; energy and digital partnership; and Indo-Pacific connects—highlighting the opportunities and challenges, as well as providing implementable recommendations for going forward.
