外文标题：India, Japan sign MoU to develop Varanasi into 'smart city'
KYOTO: Varanasi, which Prime Minister Narendra Modi represents in the Lok Sabha, will be developed into a 'smart city' by using the experience of Kyoto, the 'smart city' of Japan, under a pact signed here on Saturday.
A partner city MoU was signed by Indian ambassador Deepa Wadhwa and Kyoto mayor Daisaka Kadokawa at a ceremony witnessed by Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe.
在莫迪总理和他的日本同行安倍晋三的见证下，印度大使Deepa Wadhwa和京都市长Daisaka Kadokawa，在一个仪式上签署了伙伴城市备忘录。
The MoU, which was signed soon after Modi's arrival here on a five-day visit, provides for cooperation in heritage conservation, city modernization and cooperation in the fields of art, culture and academics, external affairs ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin told reporters.
This will serve as framework for smart heritage city programme between the two countries, he added.
Kyoto, which is a heritage city with Buddhist culture, provides special symbolism to the visit as the Prime Minister has the vision of "rejuvenating" Indian cities.
