Japan's development cooperation with India in historical context
This working paper explores the relations of development cooperation – spanning more than 60 years – between Japan and India in historical context. As Japan’s first ODA loan project of 1958 extended to India signifies, India had offered an ample opportunity for Japan to resume its relations with its Asian neighbours. By reviewing the relatively little discussed Japanese materials, the paper aims to historicise the increasingly strategic nature of Japan’s development cooperation with India.
