Prime Minister Modi’s ongoing 5-day visit to the United States has seen him meet a gamut of business leaders in New York, with further plans to meet technology leaders from Silicon Valley such as Google’s Sundar Pichai and Facebook’s Marc Zuckerberg, in a bid to attract more foreign investments into India’s growing markets.

Several of the PM’s key schemes - including his ambitious Make in India and Digital India programmes - hinge on acquiring the right amount of technological and financial support and investments, hence his upcoming visit to Silicon Valley.

But it is unclear yet whether Modi’s efforts during his five-day trip will translate into larger investments in Indian infrastructure by foreign players.

Do you think Modi’s efforts will pay off, and India will benefit? Let us know.
