India's Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, along with Ivanka Trump will inaugurate the three - day GES summit held at Hyderabad. However, various departments under the Centre had hoped that top USA officials accompanying her to the summit would endorse Modi's economic agenda and unwittingly deflate the criticism being hurled at the Prime Minister on this front by his opponents domestically. She is also scheduled to speak at another session tomorrow.

"For India, the summit holds a special place as we are more intensely focused than ever before to give entrepreneurs the opportunities and ecosystem to help them thrive", said Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog.

Newly-crowned Miss World Manushi Chhillar, star woman cricketer Mithali Raj and ace tennis player Sania Mirza will be among the speakers at the summit, on the theme of "Women First, Prosperity for All", as per the agenda of the GES. Ten countries, including Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, are sending all female delegations. Ivanka, whose schedule in the city is still kept confidential, will participate in two sessions on Wednesday on "Women Entrepreneurial Leadership" and "Innovations on Workforce development and skills training".

Juster also said that India was selected by the US government to host the GES a year ago by former US President Barack Obama's administration and that countries are chosen with regard to growing opportunities for women and creation of jobs. This GES will focus on developing startups belonging to these four sectors across the globe namely: healthcare and life sciences, digital economy and financial technology, energy and infrastructure and media and entertainment.

Over 100 innovative startups, 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.

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

In view of the event's prominence, the Telangana government allotted funds for the city's beautification and for the arrangements of the summit, a senior official said.

In addition to United States security agencies protecting Ivanka Trump, the Special Protection Group and other elite forces will take care of the security of the Prime Minister and other delegates.
