Hiramatsu said the growth potential lies with the sectors like textile, infrastructure and medical in India. "There are about 1,309 Japanese companies in India and number is growing steadily. It will grow in the years to come," the ambassador told PTI on the sidelines of the event.

He further said that he would like to congratulate the Indian government for "reforming the Indian economy (with legislations) like GST but we need to have more improvement of infrastructure".

However, situations are improving and more and more companies are interested in doing business in this country because of the improvements and there is a lot more to come in the future, he added.

Talking about the Japanese investment in the future, Kanwar said the amount is expected to double by the year 2025.
