China says 'pleased' at India-Japan rail cooperation

The service, modelled on Japan's famous Shinkansen bullet train, will connect Mumbai and Ahmedabad.

During his two days visit, many parts of the city will be partially closed to ensure smooth transport for the guests. The two leaders will later pay a visit to the iconic 16th-century mosque in the old city, Sidi Saiyad Mosque. "Later, both of them will hold talks at the hotel, before attending a dinner hosted by Modi at the same venue".

Prime Minister Modi and the Japanese PM will also attend a function to mark the commencement of work of India's first high-speed rail project between Ahmedabad and Mumbai. "This makes the occasion more important, as he is visiting a state on the very first day of his India visit".

This was the first time Mr. Modi went on a joint roadshow with the head of a country in his home state, which goes to the polls in two months. The bullet train will cut the 7-8 hour, 508km journey to just 2-3 hours. "We are confident that Prime Minister Abe's visit will present an occasion to demonstrate this concretely".

According to a programme put out by the Indian foreign ministry, Abe and his wife will be welcomed at a civic reception on Wednesday evening where the cultural diversity of India will be showcased through a series of performances.

The two countries are also expected to sign multiple economic deals and launch projects, including Suzuki vehicle manufacturing plant at Hansalpur. On the back of three India-Japan Annual Summits since the Narendra Modi led government came to power at the Centre, India-Japan ties are set to strengthen further during the course of Abe's India visit.

Both Japan and India will work towards enhancing cooperation on the worldwide level in the Asian and African countries with a focus on infrastructure. He will also take part in the 12th India-Japan Annual Summit at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar on Thursday.

The project will cost Rs. 1.10 lakh crore, 81 per cent of which will be funded by Japan in a soft loan at an interest of about 0.1 percent and a repayment period of 50 years. But before this they will also address a public meeting after the ground-breaking ceremony for the bullet train project between Ahmedabad and Mumbai. "Japan's openness to supply India with military technology reflects the high level of confidence that the two countries have developed in each other", he said.
