Japan-India Alliance Will Transform Asia

Japan-India Alliance Will Transform Asia

It hasn’t made much headline news, but the fact that India is now finally set to buy 15 US-2 seaplanes from Japan marks a significant breakthrough in Japan-India relations. It also is a harbinger of how growing India-Japan ties will transform Asia in the 21st century, and how other countries, including China and the United States, are going to have to catch up with this new geopolitical reality. The prospective seaplane sale has been almost four years in the making, and many of the details, for example, how much Japan and ShinMaywa Industries, builder of the US-2, will allow Indian companies to join in the aircraft’s co-production, are currently being negotiated.
