India, Japan finalise pact for cooperation in 5G tech, AI and critical information infra
NEW DELHI: India and Japan have finalised an ambitious agreement that provides for cooperation in 5G technology, artificial intelligence and an array of other critical areas as the two strategic partners vowed to further broadbase their ties including in the Indo-Pacific region.
After a meeting between external affairs minister S Jaishankar and his Japanese counterpart Toshimitsu Megi in Tokyo on Wednesday, it was announced that Japan agreed to be the lead partner in the connectivity pillar of the Indo-Pacific Oceans' Initiative (IPOI).
The IPOI is an India-backed framework aimed at making meaningful efforts to create a safe and secure maritime domain in the Indo-Pacific
Jaishankar, in a tweet, said further expansion of India-Japan collaboration in third countries with focus on development projects also figured in the 13th India-Japan foreign ministers' strategic dialogue.
"Recognising the increasing role being played by digital technologies, the two ministers highlighted the need for robust and resilient digital and cyber sy ems and in this context, welcomed the finalisation of the text of the cybersecurity agreement," the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said.
"The agreement promes cooperation in capacity building, research and development, security and resilience in the areas of Critical Information Infrastructure, 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), among others," it said.
The 5G is the next-generation cellular technology with download speeds stated to be 10 to 100 times faster than the current 4G LTE networks.
In their talks, Jaishankar and Megi deliberated on a broad range of areas including maritime security, trade and investment, manufacturing, connectivity and infrastructure and reform of the United Nations, the MEA said.
"They emphasised that a free, open and inclusive Indo-Pacific region must be premised on diversified and resilient supply chains; and in this context, welcomed the Supply Chain Resilience Initiative between India, Japan, Australia and other like-minded countries," the MEA said.
It said the two ministers also concurred that the Indo-Pacific has acquired greater salience in recent times and underscored the need for India and Japan to work together for the benefit of the region.

One more tight slap to ..
one more plan on paper
Goid thing and came out from Non aligning motto of Congress is obsolete. Never trust border sharing countries like Pak, , Nepal, Bangladesh.All these are volatile.
need Hard Action to punch those pokey faces & throw them n their Ch Products OUT ! Keep the game on, Hurt them Economically & Diplomatically. Wish to see them being isolated n shunned Worldwide
Back to 80s , where we have tight relationship with JAPAN . No one knows about Chines product at that time .
is strong militarily and economically but it's definitely not invincible. With a united sustained front, too can crack!!
only thing is that we should go for economies of scale.
Japanese products have REAL QUALITY and are ORIGINAL....unlike which are duplicated and COPIED....
I was always wondering why we did not align ourselves with Japan in Electronics and opted for in various modren sy em fully knowing dirty behaviour of ....
Japan has such a small population but is still so technologically advanced. Same is true for countries like France, Germany, Israel. We produce millions of scientists and engineers but most of them are very mediocre.
1000 times better than spywares. Yet, India should do a lot more R&D in the IT sector to improve the sector as well as to reduce the foreign dependence.
Hope India be a world leader in shortest time.

Japan has been India's friend from Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's time, before Independence.
India now have an impetus and OBLIGATION to NOTCH UP its RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT that can match and CONTRIBUTE in the joint VENTURE with that of JAPAN
Under Modi, many countries want to be friends with India because they know that under him India will stand up for what is and not shy away because of fear or even some ve bank pressure.
Good decision by modi go nment. is the most unfa thful country. Boycott in all sectors. It is a high time for India to choose fa thful and guaranty-warranty partners.
We must collaborate with companies like Sony, Samsung for 5G technology .. Every attempt must be made to eliminate Huawei ..
All the developed countries should put together their efforts to develop 5G and other new generation technologies and boycott technology altogether.
Japan USA Aussie r better than naughty neighbours
India must work closely with Japan on technology front
Good decision taken by both the countries. Hopefully this will strengthen our diplomatic relations with Japan.
Well done Modi
