PM Modi, Costa launch India-Portugal International StartUp Hub

Erik Tate | 25 June, 2017, 02:13

Portugal is the first leg of his three-nation tour, following which he will visit the United States on June 25 and 26 followed by a trip to the Netherlands on June 27.

Modi, a Hindu nationalist, will be making his fourth visit to the US since he took office in 2014.

The official spoke to reporters in advance of U.S. President Donald Trump's first meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, a White House visit that will include one-on-one talks and a working dinner.

PM Modi thanked the Portuguese prime minister for his consistent support for India's permanent membership of the United Nations Security Council, and of the Multilateral Export Control Regime.

Both are fairly focused on dealmaking, Kumar said, Trump as a businessman and Modi from his time as chief minister of the business-friendly Indian state of Gujarat. White House officials dismissed suggestions that the administration has ignored India.

USA officials expect a relatively low-key visit by Modi, without the fanfare of some of his previous trips to the United States, and one geared to giving the Indian leader the chance to get to know Trump personally and to show that he is doing so.

Trump's review of the H-1B visa programme threatens Indian IT services companies like Infosys, Tata Consultancy Services, Wipro, among others, which advise large companies on tech issues and carry out a range of tasks for them and are heavily dependent on the H-1B visa programme.

Marillyn Hewson, the CEO of Lockheed Martin which is bidding to produce F-16 fighter planes in India, will also meet Modi. The official added that both sides would also work towards increasing cooperation in energy, especially natural gas, and anti-terrorism.

"The IT industry contributes in the high single digits to the country's GDP and is a big employer with four million workers", Chandrashekhar further said. But Mr Trump too, with his own "America First" agenda, has promised repeatedly to bring manufacturing jobs back from overseas to the US. India's fast growing and increasingly more open economy are huge opportunities for the United States.

The approval comes during the time when leaders of both the nations prepare for their first face-to-face meeting.India initiated its request to buy 22 Guardian MQ-9B unmanned aircraft for maritime surveillance a year ago.
