Thank you India, says Japan with an exhibitionMarch 16th, 2012 - 2:03 pm ICT by IANS
Gurgaon, March 16 (IANS) A year after being ravaged by a devastating tsunami, Japan is organising an exhibition here called Japan Next to thank India for its support.
The three-day exhibition at the Ambience Mall starting here Friday will showcase Japanese products that are well-regarded in the Indian market.
“…we deigned the campaign to express Japan’s gratitude to the world for support after last year’s earthquake,” Kenichiro Takemura, representative of Intellectual Property Strategy Headquarters of the Cabinet Secretariat of Japan, said in a statement.
A massive earthquake hit Japan and triggered a powerful tsunami last March, leaving more than 15,000 people dead and thousands more injured or missing.
“We hope the exhibition will serve to further strengthen the friendly relations between the two countries while expressing Japan’s appreciation to the Indian people for the support received following the earthquake and communicating Japan’s strong determination to rise above adversity and rebuild,” added Takemura.
Products on display include automobiles and consumer electronics, ecological products and new Maruti Suzuki car.
Also brands like Canon, Casio, Hitachi, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Sharp, Pigeon, Toshiba, Toyota Kirloskar Motor and Yamaha will participate in it.
The exhibition also marks the 60th anniversary of Indo-Japan diplomatic ties.
