Infrastructure serves as the pedestal upon which economic growth is built. Physical and Social Infrastructure covering transportation, power, water supply, sanitation, sewage disposal, and urban infrastructure, facilitates growth and has a direct impact on the quality of life. No nation develops without investing in infrastructure and indeed, this is the reason why the Government of India (GoI) has formulated a deliberate strategy to make significant investments in infrastructure that will enable faster economic growth and development.
In India, many infrastructure projects along with initiatives like 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' and 'Make in India' are driving public private partnerships (PPPs) for financial assistance and technology sharing. Some of the biggest examples of this PPP are the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor and the High Speed Rail (HSR) also known as the bullet train project, which are being built with assistance from Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), along with an additional Rs. 6,000 crore loan to India for procuring 200 electric locomotives for Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (WDFC).
Many initiatives by the Government like affordable housing under 'Housing for All', the planned investment of Rs 67,523 crore towards urban development in Maharashtra, will also drive the demand for vertical transportation system in India.
Today, many Japanese organizations like Toshiba Corporation are working with India and with the assistance of Official Development Assistance (ODA) from the Government of Japan they are playing a key role in GoI's overall push to create a 'New India'. Carrying forward the pedigree of strong bilateral trade relations between India and Japan, the Japanese Government is closely working with the Government of India to further boost the strong trade relationship.
