Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit America in September to attend meetings at the United Nations before flying out to the Silicon Valley, where he will address the Indian diaspora.
He’s also likely to address students at the prestigious Stanford University during the same visit.
At California’s Silicon Valley, his supporters are busy creating another Madison Square Garden-like spectacle at SAP Centre, an indoor arena with 20,000 capacity.
In a press release, the Indian American community of West Coast USA said that Modi was the first Indian prime minister to visit California in 33 years.
It said, “Leading up to and after the reception, high-impact meetings and programs are being planned to promote the shared ideals of innovation and entrepreneurship that define both the Silicon Valley and a vibrant India under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi.”
While in California, Modi is also likely to speak at the Stanford University. He will hold bilateral talks with President Obama on September 28 before flying back home.
This will be his second visit America since becoming prime minister in May last year.
