File photo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. there is no ignoring the hopes of Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Shinzo Abe to develop their own version of the Silk Road in response to China’s expansive “One Belt,One Road” (OBOR) initiative in Eurasia and the Indo-Pacific In a statement issued at the end of their talks in Delhi over the weekend Modi and Abe pointed to “the synergy between India’s ‘Act East’ policy and Japan’s ‘Partnership for Quality Infrastructure’” The tongue-twisting acronym PQI will of course never compete with the OBOR for public attention But Abe is betting that the attractive financial terms and the high quality of investment associated with Japan’s PQI first articulated last May will more than compensate for the lack of sex appeal associated with China’s Silk Road initiatives Abe’s PQI might not be as sweeping as Chinese President Xi Jinping’s ambition to expand rail road and pipeline networks across Eurasia and promote maritime connectivity between the Indian and Pacific Oceans But Japan with its much longer experience in supporting infrastructure development in other countries has finally begun to lend a strategic dimension to its very large overseas economic assistance For Modi Abe’s initiative could not have come at a more opportune moment India has watched warily as Xi laid out bold plans to develop the $46 billion China-Pakistan economic corridor running across the Karakoram mountains to the Arabian Sea India has finessed a proposal to build the so-called K2K corridor that connects Kolkata in the eastern subcontinent with Kunming in China’s southwestern province of Yunnan through Bangladesh and Myanmar New Delhi has also been nervous about Beijing’s rapid modernisation of transport infrastructure in Tibet and its plans to extend road and rail networks into Nepal and Bhutan If Xi put all his political prestige behind the OBOR India has been unwilling to say either yes or no to these initiatives Nor did it have the resources or the capability to develop alternative proposals notwithstanding some facile talk about “Project Mausam” “Spice Route” and “Cotton Route” The unfolding development partnership with Abe however allows Modi to respond more effectively to China’s OBOR That Abe has his own reasons to compete with China on infrastructure exports has brought the interests of Delhi and Tokyo in alignment on promoting regional connectivity Abe’s agreement with Modi on building a high-speed railway system between Ahmedabad and Mumbai is a big boost to the Japanese strategy to promote infrastructure exports Tokyo had recently lost the bidding war for a high-speed railway project in Indonesia and was not pleased with Beijing wrapping similar contracts in Thailand The ambitions of Modi and Abe go beyond linking Ahmedabad with Mumbai As their joint statement noted “the two prime ministers decided to develop and strengthen reliable sustainable and resilient infrastructures that augment connectivity within India and between India and other countries in the region” And therein lies the big difference between Chinese and Japanese plans Beijing’s plans naturally are about connecting China’s continental economy to India’s smaller neighbours All roads in the OBOR lead to China Tokyo in contrast is ready to promote India’s integration with its neighbours in the subcontinent and beyond If Delhi can flesh out credible projects for regional economic connectivity within and across the subcontinent it can now count on Japanese support Of special import are the very attractive financial terms that Japan has offered to fund the $15 billion high-speed railway system between Ahmedabad and Mumbai The Japanese are offering $12 billion at very low interest rates a liberal repayment schedule and the promise to produce some of the equipment in India These generous terms will inevitably be compared with those of China’s OBOR projects In many countries including Sri Lanka there is strong concern that the long-term costs of Chinese assistance for infrastructure projects might be high and hidden Mindful of the widespread speculation about high-level corruption in the award of infrastructure contracts to Chinese companies Modi and Abe insisted that they will advance “industrial networks and regional value chains with open fair and transparent business environment in the region” While few nations would want to dump the OBOR in favour of the PQI the Japanese are improving their capacity to bargain with Beijing Modi and Abe also promised to enhance “their cooperation and coordination bilaterally and with other stakeholders to realise this strategic initiative” If it is serious about a joint strategic regional infrastructure initiative with Japan India must ask itself two big questions Why is Delhi putting Indian taxpayer rupees into Beijing-led financial institutions like the BRICS Bank and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank if it is politically uncomfortable with Chinese Silk Road projects in the neighbourhood Might India be better off pooling its limited financial resources with Tokyo that promises to mobilise $110 billion
