Tokyo: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Sunday that Japanese investors including conglomerate SoftBank have shown keen interest in investing in India's "infrastructure growth story.” Jaitley kicked off his 6-day visit on Sunday to Japan aimed at attracting investments from Asia's second biggest economy. 

After a meeting with Jaitley, SoftBank Group CEO Masayoshi Son said he is also interested in Internet companies as well as solar energy sector, where he has already announced $20 billion investment through a joint venture. 

"There are people who want to participate in infrastructure growth story. For example, at the SoftBank meeting we just had, they are looking at one of the biggest investments in solar power already," Jaitley said after meeting Son.
