On Saturday,some business industrialists and seniors business executives will be a part of Modi’s maiden visit to Japan for business delegations. PM who visited Brazil for BRICs summit and neighbouring countries like Bhutan and Nepal, aims at maintaining and strengthening business relations with Japan.
According to various sources on internet, it is said that Modi personally picked business executives for the Japan visit. From the list of 50 that had been submitted to his office–Mukesh Ambani, chairman of Reliance Industries, Sunil Mittal, chairman and group CEO of Bharti Enterprises, Chanda Kochhar, managing director and CEO of ICICI Bank, Shashi Ruia, Chairman of Essar Group, S Ramadorai, vice chairman of TCS and an adviser to the prime minister in the National Council on Skill Development, Azim Premji, chairman of Wipro, Gautam Adani, chairman of the Adani group, Dilip Shanghvi, chairman and managing director of Sun Pharmaceuticals, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, chairman and managing director of Biocon, K Venkataramanan, chief executive officer and managing director of Larsen & Toubro, D K Sarraf, chairman and managing director of ONGC are a part of business delegation.
They represent a mix of manufacturing and services with significant representation being given to technological industry. Modi, who has exhorted the world to come to manufacture in India is keen on improving the whole business ecosystem of India. He is also keen on attracting big Japanese investors who are heavy investors in China. Personally, I’m glad that after a long time, it is good to see that Prime Minister is really keen on fixing the pieces of Indian economics and business delegation to Japan is just the start!
