Excited to visit India, we can do a lot together: Ivanka Trump


NEW DELHI, Nov. 28: On the eve of her visit to India, US President Donald Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump has told The Times of India that "as the world's largest democracies... there is much we can and should do together. We share common priorities, including promoting economic growth and reform, fighting terrorism, and expanding security cooperation."




In an exclusive interview with TOI, Ivanka, a successful entrepreneur who is in Hyderabad for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES), said, "In September, I had the honor of meeting with Indian foreign minister Swaraj in New York City during the UN General Assembly. I shared with her that I have long admired India's history and culture, and my hope for continued progress, particularly as it relates to women. I look forward to continuing this conversation with Prime Minister Modi. I'm excited for my visit and hope to be back soon to see more of India."

"One of the main challenges globally is creating economic opportunities and generating economic prosperity for all our citizens - in the US, India, and throughout the world. Just as President Trump is working hard on these issues for the American people, PM Modi is also focused on expanding economic opportunities for the people of India, particularly its women," she said.




Talking of GES, Ivanka pointed out that "for the first time, over 50% of this year's participants will be women!" "I aim for GES 2017 to be a global celebration that elevates the importance of empowering women entrepreneurs. When women do better, communities and countries thrive," she said. TOI
