Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar left no stones unturned to praise the collaboration between the two Asian powerhouses, India and Japan. Jaishankar said that India’s technological partnership with Japan has resulted in Maruti Suzuki cars and Metro rail systems in multiple cities, and now the high-speed rail system or bullet trains is making its way in India. He made these comments on Thursday while speaking at the Global Technology Summit 2017. The event was organised by Carnegie India.
