Talks with Biden, Quad summit, meetings with top CEOs: Everything on PM Modi’s US visit agenda

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a whirlwind three-day visit to the United States, his first in two years, to strengthen bilateral and strategic ties between the two nations. The highlight of the tour will be PM Modi’s first in-person meeting with US President Joe Biden, who was sworn in earlier in January this year.

PM Modi landed in Washington in the wee hours of Thursday (IST) and was warmly received by the Indian diaspora living there, who waved the Indian tricolour to welcome him. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, NSA Ajit Doval, Foreign Secretary Harsh Shringla and other senior officials are part of the PM’s delegation to the US.

Grateful to the Indian community in Washington DC for the warm welcome. Our diaspora is our strength. It is commendable how the Indian diaspora has distinguished itself across the world.

The Prime Minister has a packed schedule ahead of him, beginning with a series of meetings with top American CEOs to highlight economic opportunities in India.

Later in the day, PM Modi will hold bilateral discussions with his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison, who is in Washington ahead of the Quad leaders’ summit.

He is then due for a visit to the White House, where he will meet with Vice President Kamala Harris, who is not only the first woman but also the first person of African American and Indian descent to hold the top post. This will be the first meeting between the two leaders and they are expected to “explore opportunities for cooperation between our two nations particularly in the area of science and technology”, PM Modi said ahead of his visit.

The final interaction of the day will be with Japan Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, marking PM Modi’s first in-person meeting with the man who took over after Shinzo Abe stepped down due to health complications last year.
