The Japanese government has selected eight Indian and Australian projects that will be implemented in the sphere of data, IT, medical and cold chain marketplace, among others, as part of an arrangement to counter China’s dominance in supply chain in the Indo-Pacific region.
Six of the eight projects are from India and were selected by Japan for the ‘Program for the supply chain Resilience in the Indo-Pacific Region’. The remaining two projects will be conducted in Australia. These projects will be implemented by March 2023.
“These projects will initially conduct a demonstration program to help Japanese companies visualize their supply chains, upgrade logistics, facilitate trade procedures and diversify their production bases,” the Japanese Embassy said in a statement.
