Indo-Japan relations have come a long way and has traditionally enjoyed a
strong collaborative relationship. On one hand, India is already a huge market
for Japanese companies with many of them having significant production
facilities in India, on the other hand, Japan is today India's third biggest
source for FDI. The strategic and global partnership between India and Japan
is marked by close cooperation in a number of areas of mutual interest,
including economic and industrial collaboration. This has led to a marked
shift in the investment strategies of Japanese companies as they expand
organically or inorganically in India. For the bilateral ties to strengthen by
manifolds, both countries must leverage advantages of their economic
relationship and develop compatible infrastructure.

According to Mr. Tamaki Tsukada, Minister (Economic) at Embassy of Japan in
India - "We used to have this ministerial dialogue with countries like US, EU,
Australia or China. All of them are very important economic partners for Japan
and India is indeed joining the ranks of these economies. Our partnership is
entering a new phase, erstwhile it was predominantly auto-centric but now we
see our relationship much more diversified and indigenised."

Mr. Tarun Bajaj, MD HSIIDC said - "This relationship between the state of
Haryanaand Japan was strengthened in1980's with the establishment of Maruti
Suzuki and now recently the establishment of a Panasonic factory, which is
another milestone for the state. This relationship between Haryanaand Japan
will continue to see many more such initiatives."

Also mentioned by Mr. Gaurav Bansal, Sr. GM (Marketing) at WTC Manesar - "The
bi-lateral relations between Indiaand Japan are continuously strengthening in
the last few years and the Japan Business Tower at WTC Manesar will act as one
more growth catalyst in these relations. Providing a much desired compatible
eco-system to the Japanese organizations, Japan business tower will offer
customized office spaces, dedicated Japan business desk facilitating smooth
functioning of the Japanese organizations."

Ms. Khair Ull Nissa, Sr GM Leasing at WTC Manesar said - "What we require from
Japan and what we do get from Japan is their technical prowess, we get their
manufacturing skills and we get their financial resources, we see a lot of
synergies and a lot of opportunities for India because of these bi-lateral
relations between Indiaand Japan."
