Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida arrived in New Delhi to explore ways to boost bilateral ties in a range of areas, including defence and security, trade and investment, and high technologies. In their talks later in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and PM Kishida are also set to discuss priorities for India's presidency of G20 and Japan's presidency of the G7.
The Japanese prime minister is expected to unveil his plan for a "free and open Indo-Pacific" with a focus on India's increasingly significant role in the region during the visit. The evolving situation in the Indo-Pacific in the backdrop of China's rising military assertiveness is also likely to figure in the wide-ranging talks between PM Modi and PM Kishida.
