New York, Sept. 19: US President Donald Trump’s daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump on Tuesday met External Affairs Minister of India Sushma Swaraj on the sidelines of the annual United Nation General Assembly session in New York. They discussed women entrepreneurship and workforce development in the two countries.
Ivanka would be leading American delegation to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in India in November.
“I have long respected India’s accomplished and charismatic Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj, and it was an honor to meet her today. We had a great discussion on women’s entrepreneurship, the upcoming GES 2017 and workforce development in the US and India,” Ivanka tweeted.
India and the US will co-host the GES in Hyderabad from November 28 to 30. The GES is the preeminent annual gathering of emerging entrepreneurs, investors, and business leaders from around the world.
During her week-long stay here, Swaraj, leading a high-powered Indian delegation, is expected to hold about 20 bilateral and trilateral meetings with leaders attending the session.
Swaraj is scheduled to leave for India, a day after her address to the UN General Assembly on September 23. India.com With inputs from PTI
