The United States has long advocated that the Indo-Pacific region is a matter of its own security and prosperity. On February 12, 2022, the White House released the U.S. Indo-Pacific Strategy, which aims to build a closer, prosperous, secure, resilient, free and open Indo-Pacific region to contain the rise of China and protect its hegemonic position. Since Japan and India have geopolitical advantages in the Indo-Pacific region and are strengthening their national power. It is necessary to further understand the initiatives and intention of Japan and India in strengthening security cooperation, economic cooperation and diplomatic interaction in the context of the Indo-Pacific Strategy.
