US Approves Sale Of Drones To India

Residents pass through the gate of an Indian village unofficially renamed'Trump Village in an unusual gesture to the US president

The meeting will begin at 11 a.m. and about 19 CEOs will be meeting the Indian prime minister.

There were no plans for discussing the issue of H-1B visas, the senior White House official previewing the visit for reporters said, adding "if it's raised", the U.S. will note that while Trump has ordered a review, "there have been no immediate changes in visa applications and issuance procedures".

Days before Prime Minister Narendra Modi meets US President Donald Trump's next week, health activists have expressed concerns about US pressure on India to change its drug regulatory and patent system, which may jeopardize supply of affordable generic medicines across the world.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived here on Saturday on a first ever bilateral visit by an Indian PM to this European nation.

Another American think-tank Hudson Institute has partnered with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) to host a discussion on Monday on building stronger trade relations between India and the US.

The Foundation for India and Indian Diaspora Studies (FIIDS) is organising a mini-conference on the Indo-US ties and Indian diaspora on June 25, which among others would be addressed by Dr Vijay Chauthaiwale, in-charge, foreign affairs dept of the Bharatiya Janata Party and an editor of book "Modi Doctrine: New Paradigms in India's Foreign Policy". We will deliberate on means to intensify our cooperation in counter-terrorism and on other global issues of mutual interest. Modi is expected to argue that more investment and fast economic progress of India is in the interests of the United States as many American think tanks have suggested that this would help counter Chinese influence in the region.

Indiaspora is also organising a reception to celebrate India US relationship. "The dispute over climate issues will perhaps continue to evolve during the upcoming (Modi-Trump) summit".

Bengal's Kanyashree initiative wins United Nations Public Service Award
This initiative gained popularity in the state and helped to reducing illiteracy amongst girls and child marriage drastically. A trophy and a certificate was received by Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee .

According to him, compared to former PM Manmohan Singh, Manmohan Singh, Modi has adopted a more open mind in reform and opening up.

A panel discussion to be moderated by Husain Haqqani, the former Pakistani Ambassador to the USA, would include Pratyush Kumar, president of Boeing India; Danny O'Brien, government relations leader for transportation at General Electric Company; James Shapiro, resident director in North America for Tata Sons; and Kapil Sharma, senior vice president at Wipro.

Under his America First policy, Donald Trump is redrawing United States immigration policies, including the H1B visa, which is big hit among the Indian software professionals.

"The curb on H1-B visas is bad news not only for the Indian IT sector but also Chinese students studying in United States universities".

He said some key issues such as the H1-B visa programme and Paris agreement are likely to have a much greater impact on the whole picture of the bilateral ties, and thus the two countries may have more motivation to solve these problems.

However, Modi's public programme is not of the scale of his first visit when he addressed Indian Diaspora at the Madison Square in NY in September, 2014. But Washington and New Delhi share concerns about China's rise as a military power.
