I accompanied the then Chief Minister of Gujarat (and now Hon’ble Prime Minister) Shri Narendrabhai Modi on a high-powered delegation to Japan. This visit was historic and we had fruitful meetings with top business leaders. In a statesmanlike gesture that was hailed across all quarters, the trip scripted a fresh chapter in Gujarat-Japan relations.
