Japanese investment plans in NE may come up in Modi-Abe talks

Other delicacies include miso soup, noodle soup, teriyaki fish, chicken yakitokri (a variety of skewered chicken), pork katsu curry, jasmine rice, sticky rice, tofu served in a variety of sauces and kappa maki sushi, as reported by TOI. Prime Minister Modi had visited Japan in November past year while Abe visited India in December 2015. They will then visit the "Sidi Saiyyid Ni Jaali" - a famous 16th century mosque in Ahmedabad.

PM Modi has in the past visited the Sarkhej Roza mosque and tomb complex on the outskirts of Ahmedabad.

Respecting to the healthy relationship of India with Japan PM Modi further said about strengthening the bilateral ties through a wide range of sectors. PM Modi, Abe and his wife Akie, will have dinner at city's noted Agashiye terrace restaurant, popular for the view and kosher Gujarati cuisine, NDTV reports. The train will take significantly less travel time between these two cities.

Modi received Abe and his wife at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Airport, where he waited for around half an hour to greet Abe with an embrace.

The two leaders will get down to business tomorrow when they would jointly lay the foundation stone for the high-speed train project between Ahmedabad and Mumbai which is expected to be completed by 2022. Japan's ambassador to India Kenji Hiramatsu has recently said during an interview, "While Indian companies enjoy a large presence in Africa, Japanese companies possess advanced technologies".

The next schedule of the two dignitaries would be the the 12th India-Japan Annual Summit at the sprawling auditorium complex Mahatma Mandir in state capital Gandhinagar. "And for that, we want to do what's beyond the Mumbai-Ahmedabad line and achieve economies of scale".

While a detailed joint statement is still in the works, reports quoting official sources say, the two sides are expected to sign a $1.3 billion deal for India's purchase of USA 2i amphibious aircraft built by ShinMayWa of Japan, perhaps the first defence purchase from Japan. The Modi-Abe summit is particularly significant coming days after Japan openly backed India during its recent military stand-off with China at Doklam.

In December 2015, Abe visited India and Modi took him to the Parliamentary constituency he represents, Varanasi. During that visit, Japanese PM Shinzo Abe flew down to Kyoto to offer a warm welcome to our prime minister.
