Ivanka Trump arrives in India; heres all theres to know on her visit

US President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump arrived in Hyderabad in the early hours of Tuesday to attend the Global Entrepreneurship Summit co-hosted by India and the US.

It need be mentioned that Ivanka Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the annual summit being held for the first time in India.

This is Ivanka Trump’s first big solo outing in the international stage. She has been to India before but this time, she is here as President Trump’s most trusted advisor.

Ivanka Trump’s 350-member delegation includes top administration officials and a large number of Indian-Americans. The summit will also feature 1,200 young entrepreneurs, mostly women. The youngest person attending the meet is 13, say officials.

Ivanka Trump was invited for the summit earlier this year by PM Modi during a visit to the US.

Ms Trump will deliver the keynote address at the inaugural session, along with PM Modi. She is also scheduled to speak at another session tomorrow.

This evening, the Prime Minister will host a dinner for the US President’s daughter at Hyderabad’s Falaknuma Palace, which has been lit up spectacularly for the event.

Hyderabad has virtually shut down to make for smooth movement for the summit. The police have announced traffic restrictions that have forced many schools to call a holiday.
