[3/13 31st Economic Security Study Session] Strategic importance of “India” towards the post-China era


India is attracting attention as it moves away from China.
While China's growth is slowing, India is expected to have the world's largest population by 2023, and its real GDP growth rate is expected to continue at a high rate of 6%.
Since the inauguration of the Modi government, global companies such as Apple (US) and Hon Hai (Taiwan) have already shifted their production bases to India under the "Make in India" initiative, which aims to become a manufacturing nation. Japanese companies are also accelerating their re-evaluation of India, and it is likely that they will further expand their consideration of strengthening their supply chains.
In this study session, we will invite Professor Toru Ito of the Department of International Relations, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, National Defense Academy, who is an expert on Indian diplomacy and security, to interpret India from a new perspective and explain the risks and points for Japanese companies. .
Additionally, Makiko Nagata from the Strategy Team, Economic Security Office, FRONTEO Co., Ltd. will talk about an example of an Indian company's supply chain analysis using FRONTEO AI "KIBIT Seizu Analysis."
