Well-designed digital social infrastructure is expected to play a significant role in enhancing the efficiencies of societal services and solving social issues in numerous countries as society enters the era of the internet of things, the statement said.

As the first step in collaboration, the agencies will promote a joint study on how such digital infrastructure can be used in the two countries, as well as third countries including those in Asia and Africa.

The collaboration in digital infrastructure is constant with the Japan-India Digital Partnership launched in October 2018 between the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry and India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.

Under the partnership, Japan and India agreed to establish a startup hub in Bengaluru and to unite in cybersecurity and the dissemination of next-generation networks. India and Japan have also been improving association on a wide range of issues, such as the strategic depth of bilateral security and defense cooperation, with both sharing a vision of a free, open, inclusive and rules-based Indo-Pacific region.
