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?
