Prime Minister Modi to visit Silicon valley on US tour


San Francisco: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be visiting Silicon Valley during his trip to the United States in September this year. He will be the second Prime Minister after Jawaharlal Nehru to travel to California. Nehru visited San Francisco in 1949.

As a large population of Indians in the Pacific US state is another apparent reason that Modi has chosen California. In San Francisco, Modi is likely to receive a grand reception from the Indian diaspora either at San Francisco’s Cow Palace or AT&T Park.

With Modi’s September visit, those into business expects him to focus not just on the grand brands such as Google, Intel, HP, Oracle, Facebook and Twitter, but also to the other start-ups as Silicon Valley is considered a hub for start-up companies.
