Current challenges demand deeper India-Japan ties, says PM Modi
NEW DELHI: Underlining the significance of ties with Japan, PM Narendra Modi on Sunday said current challenges demanded that the India-Japan friendship and partnership get even deeper. Modi said the partnership was relevant for global stability and prosperity during the times of Covid-19.
The PM was speaking after virtually inaugurating a Japanese Zen garden and Kaizen Academy set up at the Ahmedabad Management Association (AMA).
"The current prime minister of Japan, Yoshihide Suga, is a very straight-forward person. PM Suga and I believe during this Covid-19 pandemic crisis, the Indo-Japanese friendship and our partnership has become even more relevant for global stability and prosperity. Today, when we are facing several global challenges, it is the need of the time that our friendship and relationship get stronger day by day," Modi said.
The PM said efforts like setting up Kaizen Academy were a beautiful reflection of this relationship. "I would like Kaizen Academy to spread the work culture of Japan in India, and increase business interaction between the two countries. We also have to give new energy to the efforts already going on in this direction. I am sure our efforts will continue like this, and India and Japan will together reach new heights of development," he said.
Japanese people are very honest and hardworking... Majority of the Indians are the complete opposite. Hope Japanese can teach a thing or two to the Indians.
How many people of India are ready to follow the Japanese principle of honesty and hard work ?
Bengal ions over. You can drop the Rabindranath Tagore look. Trim your beard.

Japan is a natural partner of India. Their work culture and national pride are things to be emulated. Unfortunately Japan is having a weak economy currently.
India needs to foster deeper relationships with Japan, US, UK, EU and Russia to jointly face the difficult times ahead.
Japanese understanding with India so far is good going and deeper close working on mutual interest important
There is definitely difference between talks and actions. Japan wants action but Indian leadership is only good in talks.
Great idea and vision. In this way Japan and India both will benefit from each other’s scientic advancments.
