The India-Japan Global Partnership (IJGP) has certainly been one of the most prolific strategic partnerships between the two nations. Leadership from both the countries have always understood the value, strength and potential of such a partnership. It has resulted in various initiatives, which have focused on empowerment and holistic development.

Nearly two decades ago, with a single-minded determination to see a better, more responsible world, we started the India-Japan Global Partnership (IJGP) initiative. With strong support from the leadership of both the countries, IJGP managed to summarily change the development narrative. The mantra of the IJGP initiative was simple: ‘What can India do for Japan, What can Japan do for India, What can India and Japan together do for the world?’ India and Japan have already formed a formidable partnership—a relationship based on mutual respect, synergized strength and a vision of a sustainable future. It is now time to address how the two countries can contribute to world at large. This has prompted us to evolve the India-Japan Global Partnership Summit (IJGPS) into the Global Partnership Summit (GPS). Addressing both economies of scale and scope, the GPS promises to amalgamate and evolve socio-economic approaches that will empower humanity to create, sustain and grow. We welcome our Global Partners to this initiative where our shared vision, our strengths and our aspirations come together. This is a platform that will manifest a future that we deserve. Join us so that we can craft it together.

India and Japan have a high degree of convergence in the geo-political interests that forms the basis of a long-term partnership. The new Alternative Development Model (ADM) as envisaged by the India Center Foundation will go a long way in making these partnerships more productive. The ADM Model has the potential to be a critical engine of global growth, a vital partner in global security and a model for democratic development. It gives me immense pleasure to be Co-Chairman of GPS 2017. I am certain that the Global Partnership Summit will pragmatically engage with all the global partners for a more secure future.
