India-Japan Summit to be held in Tokyo tomorrow

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will participate in the Thirteenth India-Japan Bilateral Summit in Tokyo on Monday. The summit is set to begin at the Japanese Prime Minister’s Office in Tokyo, with the ceremonial welcome to Mr Modi at around 2.30 pm Indian time.

Delegation level talks between both the sides will take place after the welcome ceremony, followed by the signing of bilateral agreements. Both the sides are working on forging cooperation in new areas like health care sector, agriculture and food processing and modern technologies. The Prime Ministers Mr Narendra Modi and Mr Shinzo Abe will be making joint statements after the meeting and signing of agreements.

In the summit, the leaders of both the nations will review the progress made since last year in various agreed areas and projects under implementation with Japanese assistance. Bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual interest are also expected to come up for discussion during the summit. The two sides will also be exploring ways of boosting defence and strategic partnership between the two Asian democracies further. 

Earlier in the day today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had informal talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Yamanashi Prefecture in Japan. On the second day of his tour today, he visited Yamanashi, where he was received by his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe at a hotel. Mr Abe hosted Mr Modi an informal lunch. 

Later the two prime ministers together visited various facilities in the prominent robotics firm FANUC in Yamanashi. It was followed by a tete-a-tete by both the leaders at Mr Abe’s villa in Yamanashi, where he hosted dinner to Mr Modi. The Indian Prime Minister gifted two specially crafted stone bowls and durries to his host during the occasion. Both the leaders reached Tokyo in the night by the Express Train Kaiji.

India and Japan have expanded their mutual partnership beyond the traditional areas of manufacturing and trade. Both the nations are increasingly making their footprints in areas of services sector, financial markets and Information Technology. The Japanese involvement in skill development of Indian youth is a glowing example of the broad basing of bilateral ties. 

The vibrant structures that exist between the security forces of the two nations including the tri-nation Malabar naval exercises with the US, the JIMEX maritime exercise and the forthcoming joint drills on jungle warfare by both the armies testify to the new level of defence cooperation between the two countries. The current visit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to provide further fillip to the ever growing bilateral cooperation.
