High-Level Talks (On-the-Record)

Japan and India enjoy a Special Strategic and Global Partnership, involving cooperation on a wide range of issues. The two countries are also working within the Quad with the United States and Australia and normalised their security partnership through the 2+2 dialogue, bilateral security training, and Acquisitions and Cross-Servicing Agreement (ACSA). Trade between the two countries has grown, as has direct investment from Japan to India and coordination in third countries. Now that this foundation has been laid, what are ways to translate the two countries' aligning visions of a Free and Open Indo-Pacific into more practical cooperation on security, economics, technology, and people-to-people exchanges?

Plenary Session 1 | Geopolitics & Geoeconomics: Implications for the New World Order (Chatham House Rule)

Geopolitics and geoeconomics are increasingly affecting each other. How can supply chains, particularly in critical areas, take into account national security and international relations? What are ways to incentivize investments in key partner countries and compete with companies supported by heavily subsidised state actors? What geopolitical friction pointsin the Taiwan Strait, East China Sea, South China Sea, Himalayas, or South Pacificcould have the greatest effect on regional geoeconomics, and how?

Plenary Session 2 | The New Development Architecture (Chatham House Rule)

In the Indo-Pacific region, economic models and institutions are becoming more competitive. While Japan remains a champion of CP-TPP and is part of RCEP, the United States has advanced IPEF. Meanwhile, the United States, Japan, and India are paying renewed attention to economic security, cooperating closely in the Quad, and coordinating on development assistance with partners. In the future, what arrangements will take priority in shaping the trade networks, supply chains, infrastructure financing, and digital architecture in the Indo-Pacific?

Plenary Session 3 |The Prospects for Circular Economy (Chatham House Rule)

Achieving growth and development objectives, while simultaneously achieving climate and sustainability goals, will require not just changes to the supply of energy and resources, but also changing consumption patterns. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promoted the notion of Lifestyles for Environment for increasing energy and resource efficiency, reducing waste, and ensuring sustainable agricultural and health practices. What are ways in which an advanced economy like Japan and a developing economy such as India can collaborate? What role is there for the United States and other partners, for multilateral institutions such as the United Nations and World Bank, and for the private sector to provide market-based solutions to these efforts?

Plenary Session 4 | Facilitating the Green Transition (Chatham House Rule)

If national objectives for greenhouse gas emissions, energy security, and clean technological development are to be achieved, it would require ambitious outlays in public, private, and multilateral investment, as well as secure supply chains in critical solar, battery, and hydrogen technologies. What can Japan, India, and other like-minded countries and Quad do to involve their private sectors in achieving these technological and industrial objectives, including for electric and hybrid transportation, energy storage, and dissemination?

calendar

16:15 - 17:15 (JST)

Plenary Session 5 | AI, Emerging Tech, Security and Digital Infrastructure, and Connectivity Development (Chatham House Rule)

Accelerating digital connectivity and infrastructure in the Indo-Pacific is a key pillar of Japan’s FOIP initiative. Through the Quad framework, Japan and India are cooperating on a number of digital infrastructure and connectivity development projects, including undersea cables, telecommunications networks, and cloud services. How can Japan and India work together and with partners to frame standards in digital connectivity in the Indo-Pacific? How can the Quad grouping create a framework for AI & Cybersecurity Governance?
