With just 500 Indian students studying in Japanese universities, Japan's ambassador to India Takesh Yagi has said efforts are being made to woo more Indians to pursue education in the country.
"The number of Indian students studying in Japanese universities are just 500. We are trying to mobilise Indian students willing to study in Japan.
"We have just finished Japan education fair in New Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore," Yagi said.
To mark completion of 60 years of Indo-Japanese relations, Yagi said the the Emperor and Empress of Japan are expected to visit India by the end of the year.
"Indian cooperation with Japan is increasing. The number of Japanese companies operating in India have been expanding very rapidly and have now gone up to 1000," he added.
