Japan, the United States, Australia and India held their first face-to-face summit in the United States in September 2021, and reached an agreement on a routine meeting.
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida intends to strengthen Quad by hosting the leaders of the three countries and hosting meetings, showing Japan's sense of existence.
Together with the US-UK-Australia Trilateral Security Partnership (AUKUS), the US sees Quad as the foundation of its Indo-Pacific policy.
Quad is different from AUKUS in that the main issues are not only safety, but also measures against the new crown epidemic and infrastructure construction.
