NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, besides his Houston rally and an address to the UN General Assembly, is expected to feature in a series of events related to counter-terrorism as well as big-ticket investments during his visit to New York next week.
While Modi is likely to join leaders of France, Jordan and New Zealand at a counter-terrorism meeting convened by the UN on September 23, he will also address a Bloomberg business meet where he is expected to highlight the ease of doing business in India, ET has learnt.
There is also speculation that the Prime Minister will meet chief executives of US companies separately at an event in the city, to attract investment to boost the economy.
The counter-terror meet will also be attended by global technology giants, as governments plan to involve them in preventing the spread of terror online. The meet is being planned in the backdrop of the Christchurch terror attack in March and measures adopted by France to fight terror and spreading hatred online.
During his intervention, Modi is expected to highlight threats from cross-border terror and pitch for curbing terror financing. Modi and French President Emmanuel Macron had agreed on a roadmap to counter terror on social media during their August 22 summit. Jordan is also a key partner for New Delhi in the counter-terror and de-radicalisation campaign.
On September 25, the Prime Minister will deliver the keynote address at the 3rd Bloomberg Global Business Forum, which will feature several top global political and business leaders. After his speech, the PM will participate in a conversation with entrepreneur and climate change activist Michael Bloomberg.
