U.S., Japan to agree on cooperation in infrastructure development in Indo-Pacific 

Yomiuri wrote that it has learned from multiple GOJ sources that the United States and Japanese leaders will likely agree at their planned summit in April to work together to promote infrastructure development in third countries. The paper speculated that Washington and Tokyo will focus on next-generation infrastructure development in such areas as 5G networks and power generation aimed at decarbonation and that the idea is aimed at taking the lead in infrastructure development in the Indo-Pacific in response to China’s “Belt and Road” initiative. The paper also conjectured that the United States and Japan are planning to include the agreement in a post-summit joint statement.
