In a move to bolster networks in the Indo-Pacific region and counter China’s growing influence, Japan has officially joined forces with the United States and Australia, Your Content has learned.

The three nations have pledged a total of $95 million to support an undersea cable project in Micronesia. The project aims to connect several East Micronesia island nations, including Kosrae in the Federated States of Micronesia, Tarawa in Kiribati, and Nauru, to an existing cable landing point in Pohnpei.

According to the Japanese Foreign Ministry, the undersea cable will span approximately 2,250 kilometers (1,400 miles) and is set to enhance connectivity and communication capabilities in the region.

This strategic collaboration highlights the increasing concern over Beijing’s efforts to expand its economic and security influence across the Pacific Islands.

The joint statement released by the participating countries emphasizes the upcoming stages of the project, which include conducting a final survey, designing the cable, and manufacturing it.
