India is a big country with a population of 1.2 billion and the world's fourth largest GNI. While its rapid economic growth, enormous amount of investment is still necessary for development of infrastructure such as roads, railways and other urban transportation systems, power, water supply and sewerage. India also must take measures to reduce poverty for huge population living under poverty line. JICA is actively providing assistance to construct infrastructure as well as poverty alleviation.
On August 1, 2011, a Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement between Japan and India went into effect, and 2012 is a memorable year of the 60th anniversary of Japan-India diplomatic relations. JICA is providing assistance to realize Japan-India cooperation such as the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) and the Chennai-Bengaluru Industrial Corridor (CBIC) in South India, as well as assistance to strengthen Japan-India academic-industry networks, and human resources development for industries such as manufacturing. JICA is extending its assistance to contribute to stronger relations between Japan and India.
