During his three-day trip to the US, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is meeting with a number of dignitaries, including prominent business executives. After meeting with Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, PM Modi is now scheduled to have dinner with other tech CEOs, including Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, Raj Subramaniam, and others, according to CNBC.

According to rumours, the meal will happen on Thursday at the White House.

It is also reported that Sanjay Mehrotra, CEO of Micron, will attend the dinner. Mehrotra was personally summoned by PM Modi, who wants to increase semiconductor production in India. India, according to the prime minister, can offer competitive advantages throughout many strands of the semiconductor supply chain.

The story also states that Cummins CEO Jennifer Rumsey and Marriott CEO Tony Capuano will be present at the event. General Electric and India are also discussing the possibility of jointly building military aircraft engines in India through Hindustan Aeronautics.

In addition, General Atomics is anticipated to reach an agreement with PM Modi to sell India additional drones at a time when the nation is aiming to bolster its security.

According to the CNBC story, PM Modi will also host a meeting with IT executives on Friday to talk about knowledge transfer and strategies for avoiding China.

American businesses are looking at reducing their reliance on China and putting more of their attention on alternatives as a result of rising tensions between China and the US.

Recently, Apple opened two physical locations in India, and Tesla is reportedly considering establishing a manufacturing facility there.

On his first day in the US, PM Modi met with Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX. The two engaged in "multifaceted conversations on issues ranging from energy to spirituality."
