Whole world looking at India, says Modi

"When India carried out the surgical strikes, the world realised the our strength and saw that while we exercise restraint, when the need arises, India can also show its strength and might in dealing with terror and protecting itself", he said to thunderous applause from the diaspora. "Your younger generations must continue your strong bond with India", the Prime Minister told the Indian diaspora.

During the interaction at the Willard Hotel, where he is staying, Modi gave a patient hearing to the wish-list of the top bosses.

The Prime Minister pointed out opportunities for tourism through developing hotels in "PPP (public private partnership) model" at 500 railway stations, Mr Bagey said. He mentioned the Government's emphasis on efficiency, transparency, growth and benefit for all.

The CEOs were quite impressed and praised the PM for the initiatives he has taken so far in his reign, including "Make in India", "Digital India", "Start Up India", as well as the demonetization and digitization of the economy. Indian officials present at the meeting said the CEOs expressed their interest to be partners in skill development and education initiatives in India. Defence cooperation, boosting economic ties, combating terrorism and security cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region are among the key issues likely to be discussed by the leaders.

The CEOs appreciated Prime Minister Modi for his policy initiatives and the work done in recent times towards ease of doing business. The White House has said it was "seeking to roll out the red carpet" for PM Modi.

According to the India Exclusion Report 2016 report published in May, that cited labor ministry data, employment creation in 2015 plummeted to 135,000 jobs compared to 930,000 in 2011.

David Silcox is the son of James Silcox, who was 84 when he was killed by Wettlaufer at Woodstock's Caressant Care nursing home. She struggled with drugs and bizarrely admitted to police that a "red surge" would compel her to commit some of the homicides.

"Good", said Cook as he emerged out of the meeting.

The US-India Business Council (USIBC) president Mukesh Aghi said the CEOs praised the reforms being undertaken by the Prime Minister and underscore his efforts to make India a business-friendly destination.

Trump's "Buy American, Hire American" executive order has prompted a comprehensive review of H-1B visas, thus clogging Modi's funding stream of foreign-direct investments (FDIs) through the non-resident Indians (NRIs).

On a related note, the rapport and friendship between PM Modi and former US President Barack Obama was a huge sensation after there repeated meetings. He said this indicates India's quest for global benchmarks.

In conclusion, the Prime Minister thanked the CEOs for their observations.

Noting that US-India trade has tripled over the last decade, reaching a historic high of almost United States dollars 110 billion in 2015, USIBC said there is an opportunity for both the countries to also sync their regulatory and standards system to increase trade and investment. "We are bound by global laws".
