APU Indo-Japan Conclave 13:30～16:00 @ Convention Hall
Asia's two largest and oldest democracies, with ancient cultural links and enduring goodwill between their people, have declared themselves as strategic partners who cooperate in a variety of spheres such as defense, global security, civil nuclear energy, trade and investment, infrastructure, economic development, science, innovation, and cultural and people-to-people exchange.
India has emerged to become one of the fastest growing economies in the world, so there is a renewed interest in India in the Japanese business community, media and academia.
Japanese Investments in India and trade between the two countries are higher than ever before. More and more people in both countries are travelling to and studying and working in the other country.
It is in this context that we need a forum in Japan to explore new possibilities and heights in the bilateral relationship and to facilitate cultural exchange. Amid this backdrop, we have organized the 1st APU Indo-Japan Conclave.
