Japan to work closely with India on rail projects

February 2012
Japan, a pioneer in bullet train operations, has committed to ‘working closely’ with the Indian Government in its proposed high speed projects in the country. An extensive deliberation was held in this regard between visiting Japanese Minister for Land Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, Takeshi Maeda and Railway Minister, Dinesh Trivedi, according to railway sources.
The Japanese minister is believed to have assured his country’s support and expressed the desire to work closely with India, which has already identified six high-speed corridors in the country.
