Today, the seamlessness of what happens in the Pacific and Indian Ocean regions underlines the importance and relevance of Indo-Pacific." He Further said, "Japan is the only country with which we have an annual summit as well as 2+2 dialogue, and that tells how much more in sync we have become in terms of how we look at the world and define our interests." "India and Japan have seen a very visible increase in economic cooperation. FDI inflows from Japan have gone up. The number of Japanese companies in India has gone up. ODA disbursements and projects which Japan is doing through that have scaled up," EAM further added.
