On September 14, during the momentous occasion of the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, and the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, inaugurating the Rs.1.1 trillion high speed rail project, the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) is set to kickstart a unique initiative to deepen India and Japan’s bilateral engagement – especially economic and educational ties. IIMB will inaugurate the India-Japan Study Centre on campus on the same day. The aim of the Centre is to promote understanding of Japan in India and vice versa through research, teaching and policy outreach efforts.
Prof. G. Raghuram, Director, IIMB said, “At a macro level, there are complementarities between India and Japan in the sphere of economic development. We have a lot to learn from Japan on infrastructure and technology management, and we can offer them insights on the start-up culture”.
