Japan PM, Modi inaugurate Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project

On day 2 of his visit to Gujarat, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail project at ceremony near the Sabarmati Railway Station.

The two prime ministers will then visit Dandu Kutir, a museum dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi, before holding bilateral talks at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar.

Their meeting, the tenth in the last three years, will focus on defence technology and cooperation and bilateral trade between the two countries.

Modi, who is hosting the Japanese PM in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, received Abe and his wife, Akie, at the airport — a departure from protocol — on Wednesday, before embarking on a roadshow in an open-top vehicle to the Sabarmati Ashram. After a guided tour of the Ashram, they visited Sidi Saiyyed Ni Jaali, a 16th-century mosque. Modi later hosted Abe and Akie at a Gujarati rooftop restaurant.
