Addressing business leaders in Japan, Modi said, "The new government wants to reform itself and move forward... We have decided that directly under the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), a special management team for Japan will be formed, which will be dedicated to exclusively facilitate Japan."

Modi's announcement was greeted with applause by business leaders from India and Japan.

"...in the team which looks after industries, I want to add two people from Japan who can stay permanently with them and can understand things. They will be part of our decision making team and will help ease business for Japan," he said.

Modi arrived in Kyoto on Saturday and is on a five day visit to Japan. He is scheduled to hold summit-level talks with Prime Minister Abe later Monday.
