Expectations for JIM

Speeches at the India-Japan Business Plenary (September 2017)

Speech by Prime Minister Abe (Excerpt)

I would also like to contribute to Prime Minister Modi’s “Skill India.” Japanese companies eagerly desire to have leaders on the shop floor who are industry-ready. This summer, four institutes were started as Japan-India Institutes for Manufacturing by Suzuki, Toyota, Daikin and Yamaha Motor, and I am happy to hear that Hitachi Construction Machinery and Toyota Tsusho are also planning to start institutions. (…) I would like to say this to young people in India: Please come to Japan-India Institutes for Manufacturing
