'Shaping Lives, Dreams, Destinies': PM Concludes Power-Packed US Visit

PM Narendra Modi said US, India “not just forming policies, but shaping lives, dreams and destinies”.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi doubled down on the “Make in India” push in the last leg of his power-packed US visit today, flagging it to a huge gathering of Indian expats in Washington. “Investments from US will give a boost to job creation, innovation in India,” he told them, listing the multiple tech-linked accords that would help India break new grounds — the jet engine technology, semi-conductor chain, big investments from Apple and Google.

Speaking at Washington’s Reagan Centre, PM Modi flagged not only the achievements of the country, but also the “new journey” it started with the US during his state visit, which will “reshape the world”.

“In these three days, in India and US relations, a new and glorious yatra has begun This new yatra is about our cooperation for Make in India, Make for the World,” said the Prime Minister, who was pitching India as an investment destination to US entrepreneurs a short while ago.   

Together, US and India are “not just forming policies, we are shaping lives, dreams and destinies… Be it convergence on global issues or tech transfer, both countries taking strong steps for better future,” said PM Modi, whose landmark state visit saw US and India drawn together closer than ever, focussing on new areas to explore and collaborate on.

In his second address at the joint sitting of the US Congress on Thursday — a rare distinction for any world leader — PM Modi had spoken of India’s fast-growing economy, rapid pace of development in terms of infrastructure, digitisation and commitment to democratic values.

Over the last four days, PM Modi has held bilateral talks with President Joe Biden, attended a state dinner, addressed CEOs, expats and thought leaders.

As he left the US for Egypt today, PM Modi tweeted, “Concluding a very special USA visit, where I got to take part in numerous programmes and interactions aimed at adding momentum to the India-USA friendship. Our nations will keep working together to make our planet a better place for the coming generations”.
