TOKYO: Seeking to woo investors from Asia’s second biggest economy, finance minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday began his six-day Japan visit as he met Masayoshi Son, the CEO of Japanese telecom giant SoftBank Group, which is eyeing “one of the biggest” investments in solar power sector in India. Jaitley said many investors including SoftBank are keen to invest in infrastructure sector to be part of the Indian growth story. In June last year, SoftBank announced it was forming a joint-venture with Bharti Enterprises and Taiwan’s Foxconn Technology Group to invest about $20 billion (Rs1.34 lahk crore) in renewable energy in India.
