"We welcome India's active contribution and hope it will continue to support our efforts to maintain safety, security and freedom of navigation in order to promote peace and cooperation in the South China Sea on the basis of global law", he said.

Talking about the Goods and Services tax (GST), the minister said, "Recently, government launched GST, biggest tax reform since independence". "These steps have opened new opportunities for trade and investments into India".
