As a first step, we did organize the 1st India- Japan Geospatial and Space Business Summit at Hyderabad, India with Department of Science & Technology (DST), Government of India as Co-Organiser on 15 November, 2022. Recommendations and Conclusions did emphasise on continued engagement and encourage cooperation in the field of technology transfer, manufacturing, and joint ventures in the field. Additionally, strategic recommendation was made to expand India-Japan business relations to Indo-Pacific region especially leveraging geospatial and space capabilities of the two countries to support developing countries and common partners in Indo-Pacific region.
Following the recommendations, we are organizing the 2nd India Japan Geospatial & Space Business Summit in India on June 7, 2023 with JETRO as Strategic Partner and Geospatial World (GW) as Knowledge Partner. The 2nd edition would also provide greater opportunities for strengthening institutional and business relationship between the two countries.
