The India-Japan Global Partnership (IJGP) has certainly been one of the most prolific strategic partnerships between the two nations.

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.
