STORY: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Dublin on Wednesday (September 23).
Modi, who is in the country for a brief visit before flying to the U.S., was received by Irish Health Minister Leo Varadkar at the airport.
Later in the day, he is expected to meet Taoiseach of Ireland, Enda Kenny, to boost bilateral ties and also briefly interact with the Indian community in Ireland.
Modi is the first Indian PM to visit Ireland in almost 60 years.
He will leave for the U.S. later in the evening. In New York, the Indian PM will address the annual United Nations General Assembly summit on September 25.
Later, he will visit West Coast – the home of start-ups, innovation and technology. It will be the first visit to West Coast by an Indian PM in 33 years.
On September 28, Modi will call on U.S. President Barack Obama, their third meeting in a year which reflects shared concerns about an increasingly assertive China as well as a desire to boost commercial ties.
Before wrapping up his U.S. tour, Modi is due to visit Silicon Valley, which is home to technology giants like Google, Facebook and Apple, and invite them to invest in India.
