Topic Description:

Description-Strengthening of ties in key areas of defence, trade and infrastructure will top the agenda when Prime Minister Narendra Modi meets his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe in Japan next week, the country's envoy Kenji Hiramatsu said Monday. At an interaction at the Brookings India think tank, Kenji said talks are on between the two sides on strengthening maritime cooperation, including the signing of the Mutual Logistical Support Agreement. PM Modi will be in Japan on October 28 and 29 for the annual summit between the prime ministers of the two countries. It will be the fifth annual summit between Modi and Abe and their 12th meeting overall since 2014. India and Japan are collaborating on various fronts including high-speed railway, which has been planned between Mumbai and Ahemdabad. The project has been facing resistance over acquisition of land. Japan is also funding the project and the envoy said the first tranche of loan has been transferred.
