Both Modi and Abe will preside over the stone laying ceremony of India's first High Speed Rail Network popularly called Mumbai-Ahmedabad Bullet Train at the Athletic ground in Sabarmati.

Japan is arranging with India to upgrade security talks involving vice foreign and defense ministers to a ministerial-level dialogue in light of China's growing influence in the Asia-Pacific region and the Indian Ocean, government sources said Tuesday. Before taking power in 2014, Mr Modi served as chief minister of Gujarat. The train is expected to run at an average speed of 250 km per hour and a maximum speed of 320 km per hour, which is more than double the maximum speed of the fastest train in India.

While assuring the transportation revolution, which the new Mumbai-Ahmedabad Bullet train will bring, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, on Monday, drew parallel to the criticism Suzuki faced when Maruti was brought in 30 years ago.

In the city, where both the leaders will hold an 8-km long road show from Ahmedabad airport to Sabarmati Ashram, artists from 28 states will perform on 28 locations to give a glimpse of the Indian culture. During that visit, Japanese PM Shinzo Abe flew down to Kyoto to offer a warm welcome to our prime minister.

The Foundation stone for the bullet train project will be laid on September 14 at western Gujarat state on the Ahmedabad-Mumbai route.
