The AP delegation comprised of K. Rama Mohan Rao (Special Representative of the State government in Delhi), P.V. Ramesh (Principal Finance Secretary) and Shamsher Singh Rawat (Secretary, Industries and Commerce Department).Subsequently a five member team of senior government officials from the Toyama , headed by Urushibata, Director General, Tourism & Regional Promotion Bureau, visited Sri City in November 2015.

The pact signed between the two countries will facilitate exchange of technology, technical assistance from Toyoma, known for its ports, and pharma industries.
