Tokyo: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Monday attracted Japanese investors to India, stating he knew the coordination that is needed between investors and government for development.
“I understand the coordination needed between government and investors,” Modi, speaking in Hindi, said at a luncheon hosted by the Keidanren or the Japanese Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the Japan-India Business Cooperation Committee.
Stating that he had worked with Japanese businessmen when he was the chief minister of Gujarat, he said: “Japanese people who have worked in Gujarat know better than me about the Gujarat model of development.”
Talking about the first 100 days of the BJP government in power, he said that he has made the Prime Minister’s Office more efficient.
“The 5.7 percent growth rate in the first quarter of this fiscal reflects this,” he said.
