"As President Trump said earlier this year: India has a true friend in the White House", she noted, without specifying the recent pronouncements of the United States administration favourable to India in the area of security, diplomacy and cooperation.

Formerly a top executive at her family's company in NY and now a White House adviser, Ivanka Trump is scheduled to deliver a speech at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, and the Indian government pulled out all the stops before her arrival, according to NBC News. "All of you are helping India's middle class reach its goal of becoming 500 million people by 2030". Colonel MS Dahiya SC spoke about the Siachen Operation in 1984-85 and recalled the difficulties involved in operating on inhospitable terrain.

Others praised the visit for its potential to strengthen relations and economic ties between the United States and India, the world's seventh-largest economy, according to the World Bank's gross domestic product rankings. "It is incredible to be in this ancient city which is brimming with transformative technology".

The annual entrepreneurship conference will focus on the theme this year of "Women first, prosperity for all", and involves networking, mentoring and workshops.

# I am proud to see that for the first time a majority of 1500 women entrepreneurs are participating in such an event.

She said much remains to be done with regard to equitable laws for women in many developing, as well as developed countries. "We must ensure women entrepreneurs have access to capital, access to networks and mentors", Ivanka said to loud cheers from a packed audience in a heavily-guarded conference centre.

She also said that when women work, it creates a "multiplier effect", and leads to more reinvestment in families and society. Within minutes of their arrival, numerous participants got into networking, the foundations of which were laid over the mobile app GES "17 developed for the Summit. Through your own enterprise, entrepreneurship, and hard work, the people of India have lifted more than 130 million citizens out of poverty - a remarkable improvement, and one I know will continue to grow under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi".

Furthermore, Trump's visit is far better than if her father had gone to India.
