Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to the President Donald Trump following the successful conclusion of the Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2017, which was co-hosted by India and the US.
According to a news report, both leaders had a telephonic conversation during which they “expressed satisfaction” over the eight edition of the GES held in Hyderabad, where nearly 1,500 entrepreneurs and investors from 150 countries came together for networking, mentoring and investment.
On Thursday, US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert had hailed the three-day mega business event as a “tremendous success”.
US President’s daughter Ivanka Trump attended the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Hyderabad where she talked about the friendship between India and the United States of America.
“India hosting the Global Entrepreneurship Summit is “a symbol of the strengthened friendship between our two peoples, and the growing economic and security partnership between our two nations. As President Trump said earlier this year India has a true friend in the White House,” Ivanka said at the Summit.
She also lauded the Prime Minister’s transformation from a humble tea-seller to the leader of the world’s largest democracy.
Prime Minister Modi too talked up bilateral relations, saying the GES 2017 event “not only connects Silicon Valley with Hyderabad but also showcases the close ties between the US and India.”
