India and Japan have long enjoyed close and warm relations. In 2007, "Japan-India Exchange Year" commemorated the 50th anniversary of the signing of a Cultural Agreement between the countries, while 2012 marked the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.

Prime Minister Abe and Prime Minister Modi have further strengthened the India-Japan strategic economic partnership, and are promoting investments by Japanese companies in India.

Toshiba’s relationship with India dates back over 50 years. Today, Toshiba recognizes India not only as an emerging economic power but also uniquely positioned to serve markets in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa. It has made India a hub for manufacturing operations and exports, and is promoting ‘Make-in-India’ and ‘Export-from-India’.

One of the most important Toshiba Group companies in India is Toshiba JSW Power Systems (TJPS), established in 2008 to manufacture and market steam turbines and generators for thermal power plants in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. TJPS has capabilities in ultra super-critical and super-critical steam turbine generators, and recently achieved a significant milestone in its ‘Make-in-India’ endeavors, when it shipped its first large-scale generation system manufactured and assembled with locally procured parts and systems, and tested in India.

With our ‘Make-in-India’ strategy, Toshiba will contribute to the development of both India and Japan in the power and infrastructure sectors, drawing on its experience, expertise and technology innovation FOR THE NEXT INDIA.
