Background and Objective

The 21st century has witnessed the historic advancement of India Japan relations to the level of Special Strategic and Global Partnership. More recently, the two leading Asian democracies have come together with a mandate from the dynamic Prime Ministers of both countries-Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe to enhancing ties through economic cooperation and greater people to people contacts.
While strengthening security and political relations and economic engagement forms the centre stage of our relationship with Japan at current times, there is a clear realisation that increased “people to people exchanges” through tourism, culture and sports-related activities are an equally significant cornerstone of this evolving partnership.
