Japanese perspective on the rise of India and China and their impact on East Asia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

As Japan fundamentally reorients its foreign and security policies in response to rapidly changing political and economic environment in East Asia, much of the debate on East Asia expectedly centres around China given its dominant geographical position and its fast rising military and economic profile. China’s assertive attempts to challenge the status quo have compelled Japan to evaluate options besides attempting to strengthen its partnership with the US and pursue a more vigorous security policy. India certainly has emerged as a key strategic partner and their relationship is being strengthened both economically and in terms of security. The US, on the other hand, seems to be evolving a new strategy so that it would not openly antagonise China but at the same time keep the alliance with Japan credible so that it retains considerable leverage to manage East Asian affairs.
