Indian Prime Minister Modi gets warm welcome by Indians in US

Indian Prime Minister Modi gets warm welcome by Indians in US”

Ahead of his meeting with Mr Trump, Mr Modi is scheduled to meet top American business leaders, including the heads of Apple, Microsoft and Google.

The Prime Minister said that there has not been a single allegation of corruption against his government in the last three years.

"There is much to celebrate in our country's relationship with India, the world's largest democracy, and in the enormous contributions that Indian-Americans make in our country", said Congressman David Schweikert.

The highlight of Modi's interaction was on the Goods and Services Tax (GST) which he termed as a complex task and its implementation may soon be "a subject of studies in U.S. business schools..." "Interacted with top CEOs", Modi tweeted after a 90-minute-long meeting with the heads of 20 US-based firms.

The growth of India presents a win-win partnership for India and the United States both. He said the External Affairs Ministry is now connected with the poorest of the poor in the country. “I think that the United States really appreciates India.

Modi arrived in USA on 25 June and was warmly welcomed by the Indian-Americans with a number of events organised for the PM.

Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], June 26: In his second leg of his three-nation tour, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a round table meeting with business leaders in the U.S., Indian American businessmen pointed to the dual taxation as a major hurdle for investments in India.

"Look forward to welcoming India's PM Modi to @WhiteHouse on Monday". Then, Mr Modi will become the first foreign dignitary to be entertained at a dinner at the White House by the Trump administration.

Modi "is a very powerful leader and I am sure something very positive on the H1B visa is going to come out of his meeting with Trump", she said. The meetings will be followed by a cocktail reception, and then a working dinner which will notably be the first for a foreign leader at the White House under the Trump administration.

Analysts said Monday's meeting at the White House would give Modi the chance to size up a USA leader whose focus has so far been on ties with India's regional rival China.

In a letter to Trump, the lawmakers, from the Republican and Democratic parties, said a number of U.S. goods, including solar and information technology products, telecommunications equipment and biotechnology products, were affected as India continues to be a hard place for American companies to do business.

Briefing journalists on the eve of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Washington, a senior White House official revealed preparations have been in full swing to make it memorable. "India has four decades' experience in fighting terrorism, and we share the USA administration's determination to defeat this scourge", he said. "We are looking at a very productive visit", she said.

In a briefing before his arrival in the US, the White House said the focus of the meetings would be defense and security, including defense trade, and some new counter-terrorism initiatives.

The broad brush of subjects for talks would focus on the familiar: the ongoing cooperation in a host of areas, including counter-terrorism, defence partnership, common interests in Indo-Pacific region, trade and investment.
