Ivanka Trump, daughter and adviser to US President Donald Trump, has arrived in Hyderabad for the annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit co-hosted by India and the US. The summit, which is expected to be attended by representatives of almost 150 countries, will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi after he flags off the Hyderabad Metro Rail at Miyapur station.

She will speak at the GES inaugural session Tuesday and another session Wednesday. This entrepreneurship summit will especially focus on developing women entrepreneurs across the globe. Talking of GES, Ivanka pointed out that "for the first time, over 50% of this year's participants will be women!". Ten countries, including Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, are sending all female delegations. "The theme demonstrates the commitment of the governments of the US and India to the principle that when women are economically empowered, their communities and countries thrive", Mr Kant said. He said that the Summit would focus on four main sectors - energy and infrastructure, digital economy and financial technology, health and life sciences, and media and entertainment. Over a hundred innovative start-ups, products, services and processes will be exhibited through a multi-touch interactive wall, sensor-enabled touch screens, rotoscope mural technology and physical displays. It may be mentioned that Modi had invited Ivanka to visit India, during his visit to the US. Eminent panelists such as Union defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Chanda Kochhar, MD and CEO ICICI Bank, Karen Quintos, CCO, Dell and Cherie Blair, of Cherie Blair Foundation for Women will also take part in these discussions along with Ivanka.

US Ambassador to India Kenneth Juster on Monday said India can be the anchor for US business and investment in the Indo-Pacific region.
