Donald Trump awaits his 'true friend' Narendra Modi

Praising Modi's speech at the Indian Diaspora, an Indian expat said, "Prime Minister Modi's speech was comprehensive as he talked about India's development in various spheres and what his government has accomplished in the last three years". While Trump champions the idea of "America First" and wants to stop the migration of jobs overseas, Modi has his own drive to boost manufacturing at home, dubbed "Make in India".

"Interacted with top CEOs".

Among other CEOs present at the meeting were Shantanu Narayen from Adobe, Ajay Banga from Mastercard, David Farr from Emerson, Doug McMillon and Punit Renjen from Deloitte Global.

The Prime Minister also said the warmth, the Indian community gave is memorable.

Modi said the confidence in each other's political values and a strong belief in each other's prosperity has led to greater engagements between the two countries. In making the announcement, the United States president said New Delhi had made its participation "contingent on receiving billions and billions and billions of dollars in foreign aid". Both leaders will be meeting in the background of a trade deficit in India's favor. India would like the U.S.to cut military aid to Pakistan, the MEA spokesperson said last week, and to increase its resources to bolster the Ghani government against the Taliban. Trump posted on his official (@POTUS) Twitter handle.

A senior Indian official voiced hope for "chemistry", while a USA official said the two men had a lot in common, noting that Modi would be the first foreign dignitary to have a working dinner at the White House under the new administration.

After an Oval Office meeting mid-afternoon, the leaders will dine together at the White House, though no press conference is scheduled.

"The transformation of India presents abundant commercial and investment opportunities for American businesses", said Modi whose government is about to implement a new nationwide tax system created to scythe through red tape. "In fact, the two (leaders) will have dinner, a working dinner at the White House", a senior administration official had told reporters at the White House. The Trump administration is set to authorize the sale of surveillance drones to India as the two nations' leaders prepare for their first face-to-face meeting on June 26.

Modi's meeting with top business leaders which included the likes of Apple's Tim Cook, Google's Indian-American CEO Sunder Pichai, Amazon's Jeff Bezos and many others come in the backdrop of growing economic uncertainty in both the U.S. and India. "In my sense, India is still a country with its own pride and glory so I don't think India will go very far from far beyond the general non-alignment policy", she said.

Earlier today in his conference with USA business honchos, Prime Minister Modi stressed that the whole world is looking at India today adding that growth for New Delhi also presents a win-win partnership for the United States. They will look to expand ties on defense and fighting terrorism, but strains are likely on trade.

Speaking at the beginning of the Cabinet meeting on Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his "friend" Modi's visit to Israel is historic.
