No bilateral meeting between PM Modi and Pak PM at Davos

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also scheduled to attend the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos.

According to Abhishek, the Indian PM is expected to be in Davos only for a day, but will meet the top officials of about 60 companies, including Airbus, Hitachi, IBM, BAE Systems and the Carlyle Group.

PM Modi will hold an inaugural keynote address and the business community there is looking forward to it.

The CEO delegation, led by top industry body CII, will include Mukesh Ambani, Gautam Adani, Azim Premji, Rahul Bajaj, N Chandrasekaran, Chanda Kochhar, Uday Kotak and Ajay Singh, among others.

A No 10 spokesman said: "The Prime Minister will have a bilateral meeting with President Trump in the margins of the World Economic Forum at Davos in Switzerland next week". Mr Gokhale said the focus will be on the Prime Minister's vision about India's economy at the domestic as well as global level.

While May was the first foreign leader to visit the White House previous year, relations between the US and the United Kingdom have proved to be rocky in recent months. "It is natural that the world wants to talk directly to India and the world wants to hear directly from the horse's mouth", Prime Minister told a television channel in an interview.

On the sidelines of the WEF summit, the Swiss government will also host the annual informal WTO ministerial meeting, which will be attended by Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu and his global counterparts.
