活動目的 / Why we do?
[mks_separator style=”dotted” height=”2″]

日本の外務省の調査によると、およそ9000人の日本人がインドに住んでおり、
また30,000人ほどのインド人が日本に住んでいます。

しかし残念なことに、日常生活においても、またビジネスの場においても、日本とインドの間には
未だ大きなコミュニケーションギャップが存在しています。
ほとんどの日本の人々は、インドにおける文化の多様性や今日の目を見張る発展に気づいておらず、
インド人もまた日本の人々の習慣や、その独特な文化についてあまりよく知りません。

それらを埋めるためには、インドと日本の二国間に存在する様々な違いや、それにより生じうる誤解を
完璧に理解し、両国をつなぐ役割を果たすような人や団体が必要不可欠であると考えられます。
ですが現状そのような存在は、あまり多くは見られません。

我々JSIの使命は、まさにそのギャップを埋める架け橋のような存在となること。
両国の関係強化や相互発展への貢献を目指し、日々様々な活動を行っています。

India-Japan relationship is at an all-time high and the leaders of both the nations are aligned in their larger ambitions and growth story.

•Under the Tokyo Declaration for Japan-India Special Strategic and Global Partnership, Prime Minister Modi and Prime Minister Abe have set a target of doubling Japanese FDI and the number of Japanese firms in India by 2019.
•Prime Minister Abe has set a target of $33.5 Billion investment into India by 2019 .
•There are already 1,229 Japanese firms operating with 4,417 offices in India (as per the Embassy of Japan in India, October 2015)
•India and Japan have set up a project development fund for the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor(DMIC) with both the countries contributing equally. The project is one of the most expensive infrastructure projects in the world with an estimated investment of $90 Billion.
•The project is expected to employ over 100 million people over the next decade.
•Japan is one of the leading supporters of the ‘Make in India’ initiative and has offered technology transfer, staff training and a loan to India at the rate of 0.1% for the bullet train project.
•Japan has set up a 1.5 trillion yen (approx. Rs. 83,000 Crore) ‘Make in India’ fund.
•India plans to set up ‘Japan Industrial Townships’ all over India
•India-Japan strategic ties have further strengthened with the December 12, 2015 agreement on Defense Equipment and Technology Cooperation.
•India and Japan have conducted several joint military exercises and India has offered its full support to Japan to maintain peace and harmony in the region.

“The peoples of India and Japan are guided by common cultural traditions including the heritage of Buddhism, and share commitment to the ideals of democracy, tolerance,
pluralism and open society. India and Japan, two of the largest and oldest democracies in Asia having a high degree of congruence of political, economic and strategic
interests, view each other as partners that have responsibility for and are capable of responding to global and regional challenges.”
– Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India

Even with all these high level developments there is not much people to people contact between the two countries.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan there are less than 9000 Japanese people living in India and less than 30000 Indians living in Japan.

There is a huge communication gap. People of Japan are not aware of the diversity, culture and the recent developments in India and Indians don’t know much about the Japanese people and its unique culture.

Videos, cultural events, Indian and Japanese dance, music and food workshops, language exchange, volunteer/social work opportunities and lectures are some of the activities we plan to pursue through this channel.
