Bullet train between Ahmedabad and Mumbai will be operational in five years

Japanese Consul General Ryoji Noda said   India's first high-speed rail project between Mumbai and Ahmedabad that will cover the distance in two hours will be operational in the next five years .

Mr Noda, who was on a visit to Gujarat capital on January 23rd  said both Japan and India were global and strategic partners and this relationship has further strengthened after Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to Gujarat in September last .

Both Mr Abe and Indian PM Narendra Modi had inaugurated the high-speed train project, which would connect Ahmedabad and Mumbai in just two hours. This project should be completed by the end of 2023," Noda told reporters.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of the function in Gujarat capital, Noda also said they were promoting Japan as a tourist destination among Indians, as "very few people" from India visit his country as compared to those from China.

We are promoting our tourism among Indian people, as there is a huge gap between those coming from China and those from India to our country. While around 2.6 million Chinese tourists visit Japan (every year), only 1,20,000 come from India," he said.
