  • PM Modi and Japanese PM Abe Lay Foundation Stone for India’s First High Speed Rail Project			 0					By		mainlogin

Abe's two-day visit to Ahmedabad comes ahead of Modi's 67th birthday on Sunday. Moreover, apart from this, the two prime ministers will also launch various projects comprising of Rs 3,000-crore Suzuki auto manufacturing plant at Hansalpur, which is about 170 km from Ahmedabad. Abe is not the first foreign dignitary to be brought to Ahmedabad by Modi and paraded as a close friend. Abe and his wife, Akie, changed into traditional Indian clothes and went on a roadshow for about 8.5 km in an open-top vehicle, from the airport to the Sabarmati Ashram.

A sum of around Rs. 1.10 lakh crore will be spent on the project that is being partially funded by Japan.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will lay the foundation stone for India's first bullet train in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state Gujarat this week, in a tightening of ties just days after New Delhi ended a unsafe military confrontation with China.

Subsequently, Mr. Modi hosted a dinner for the visitors with famed Gujarati thali and Japanese delicacies at Agashiye, a popular Gujarat restaurant in the House of MG, a heritage hotel opposite the mosque.

Abe and Modi are also expected to exchange views on North Korea, which carried out its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3 despite repeated warnings from the global community, according to Japanese government officials. After visiting Sabarmati Ashram, both of them will take rest until evening.

At the summit meeting today, Japan is also expected to affirm close cooperation with India, to address the threat from North Korea, which conducted a sixth nuclear test recently and has continued to launch ballistic missiles, officials said.

Modi further added "PM @AbeShinzo and I will attend a wide range of programs on 13th and 14th September 2017, aimed at further boosting India-Japan ties".

After the roadshow, PM Modi and Abe will visit the Sabarmati Ashram, which was home to Mahatma Gandhi from 1917 to 1930.

The two leaders will attend a public function to mark the commencement of work of India's first high-speed rail project between Ahmedabad and Mumbai, on the second day of Abe's visit to the country.

The two countries are expected to sign multiple economic deals and launch projects, including a Suzuki auto manufacturing plant at Hansalpur, about 170 km from Ahmedabad, through remote control.

Both leaders will also hold an India-Japan business plenary meeting later on Thursday. The ceremony will be held at a site near the Sabarmati railway station in the city. Japan also wishes to expand developmental cooperation to Northeast India.
