  1. 1. Pakistan Relation with Japan and south East Asia Japan-Pakistan Relation Japan and Pakistan had established diplomatic relations on 28 April 1952. Relations between Pakistan and Japan have been strong. Despite having been through various phases and having witnessed some vicissitudes, PakistanJapan relations have kept growing to the mutual benefit of the two countries. Until the late 1950s, the relationship was essentially that of two developing countries. Pakistan, being the main source of raw cotton for Japan's textile industry, was one of its major trading partners. Japanese spindles on the other hand helped build Pakistan's textile industry. In the 1960s, Japan, however, reemerged as a modern industrialized nation and started extending Yen loan assistance to Pakistan. The Japanese assistance was doubled to Pakistan following the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Japan, since then, has been Pakistan's major source of economic assistance, a leading trading partner, and an important source of foreign investment.  Tokyo and Islamabad have long enjoyed cordial and formidable relations throughout chronology. Japan's economic assistance has played a very important role in the development of Pakistan's economic and social infrastructure. The major projects, which have been funded by the Government of Japan, include the Indus Highway Project, a number of power projects in various provinces of Pakistan, Rural Roads Construction Project, and the Children Hospital PIMS Islamabad Project. Presently the Kohat Tunnel Project and the Ghazi Brotha Dam Project have completed with the help of the Japanese assistance. Rajaaleem180@gmail.com 2K12/IR/21 M.A. (previous)

The 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, jointly celebrated by the two countries in 2002, was a significant landmark in the history of this friendship. As of 1999, there are at least 10,000 Pakistanis residing in Japan. Economical Support: Japan is the largest donor of Pakistan providing commodity loans, grants, and technical assistance. The economic assistance provided by it has played a very important role in the development of Pakistan’s economic and social infrastructure. More than sixty projects under Japanese Official Development Assistance have been completed. The Official Development Assistance at its highest point averaged US$ 500 million per annum.  Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) from Japan has also played a very important role in the economic development of Pakistan. It has been steadily increasing particularly in the areas of automobile, energy, banking, and financial institutions and infrastructure. SUZUKI, TOYOTA, AND HONDA MOTORS: Japanese firms directly invested in the production in Pakistan. Suzuki of Japan is engaged in producing motorcycles and cars in Pakistan. The motorcycles produced by the Japanese firms have captured over 36% share in the market. These companies manufactured and assembled vehicles in Pakistan. It is producing over 3,000 units every year. The Suzuki plant has the capacity to export them too, in addition to meeting the domestic market. Besides, Yamaha, Honda and Vespa motorcycles are also widely sold in Pakistan. Japan enjoys a major share in the auto market. The Pakistan Suzuki has joint venture with Pakistan Automobile Corporation. It started in 1983, and it has gained substantial share in the market.

It has gained over 50% share in the market. The company has also successfully exported buses to Dubai. However, such quantum is limited. The company exported on a price higher than neighboring competitor, India, due to its better quality. o Honda: The Honda motors are also assembling cars and motorcycles in Pakistan. It enjoys the status of popular company for cars and motorcycles. Besides, Japanese firms also provide help in assembling tractors and other machinery in Pakistan. All above shows strong emerging economic relations between Pakistan and Japan. In addition to Japanese firms, several other multinational are also entered into joint ventures with Pakistani firms and they are producing several different products. Phillips electrical is producing TVs and electronic goods. Reckitt and Colman is engaged in the production ofmedicines. Pak Saudi and Dawood Hercules are engaged in the production of fertilizers and pesticides. Besides, Siemens is engaged in several projects related to electrical and other goods.
