Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Washington to a reception at the Andrews Air Force Base by an Indian-origin group. The PM had one-on-one meetings with CEOs of five US MNCs specialising in different sectors of great interest for New Delhi, ranging from military drones to advanced digital and solar technologies.
The PM’s schedule included interactions with US Vice-President Kamala Harris and Prime Ministers of Japan and Australia, Yoshihide Suga and Scott Morrison. He will meet US President Joe Biden at the White House on Friday followed by the first in-person Quad summit.
Amidst strict security at the hotel with the main lane barricaded with concrete barriers, the Prime Minister’s common message to the CEOs was to consider investing in India to cater to the local market as well as export.
