Indian Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi is set to go on a five-day visit to the United States, starting September 22. During the trip, he’s expected to meet Apple CEO Tim Cook and other world leaders – like Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison – besides American dignitaries. The main event during his visit is, of course, the United Nations General Assembly in New York. The Prime Minister’s plans are as follows:
- September 22: Prime Minister Modi is likely to attend a COVID-19 summit
- September 23: Bilateral meets with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga. Modi is also set to meet executives of American companies, including Apple head honcho, Tim Cook, all of which will precede a gala dinner – hosted by President Joe Biden – where he is likely to meet Vice President Kamala Harris as well.
- September 24: Bilateral meeting with President Joe Biden – expected to focus on trade, investment, defence and security – as well as a meeting with the QUAD – consisting of India, America, Japan and Australia.
- September 25: Prime Minister Modi will then travel to New York, from Washington, to attend the United Nations General Assembly. He will also address the assembly.
This is set to be Modi’s first visit to America since 2019, when he attended the ‘Howdy Modi’ event in Houston, with then President Donald Trump. He is set to return to India on Sunday, September 27.Internet Explorer Channel Network
