makes sense for us to be close with Japanese.their economy is in shits and they are looking for foreign investment to boost their growth but most importantly with heavy Japanese investment we would be diversifying our fdi sources and also bncing out .

Foreign investment will increase when the economy is good, since the excess money will need to have a place to be invested, and not overheat the economy. If Japan's economy is bad, they should increase investment in their own country, and not increase foreign investment.

With loans, Japan brings in Japanese firms to these infrastructure project too. A lot of contracts goes to Japanese firms whether it's Delhi metro or other infra projects.
With soft loans, Japan ensures that Japanese firms have better chances of wng big contracts. The money they invest eventually earns value though these contracts and not as much through interests.

If Japan works in japan most of the staff will be japanese, few of the bosses would be japanese. But by working on other countries they can elevate more people into higher roles, making not just more profit but also increasing class strata of communities. This is similar reason is doing all over the world. It is so more of its people can perform as leaders rather than workers.

They are doing what the are doing with Africa. Adopting poor countries and investing huge to get return on massive scale.
gifted 37 world class Soccer Stadiums to African nations as a gesture of goodwill. C'mon Japs, where's our gift?
