Ivanka Trump to lead US delegation for summit in Hyderabad



Washington/New Delhi, Aug 11: President Donald Trump's daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump will lead the US delegation to India for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) slated for November, the media reported.



The move was announced on Thursday by the President, reports The Hill magazine. 



"(Ivanka Trump) will lead the U.S. delegation to India this fall, supporting women's entrepreneurship globally," he tweeted.



Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had invited Ivanka Trump during his trip to the US in June.



Donald Trump said his daughter would use the conference, which will take place from November 28 to 30 in Hyderabad, as a way to promote women's entrepreneurship around the world.



Modi also confirmed Ivanka Trump's impending visit on his own Twitter account, saying that he was looking forward to her trip to India.



"(I) Look forward to Ivanka Trump's presence at #GES 2017 Hyderabad as the leader of the US delegation," Modi tweeted on Thursday night.



In a separate statement, Mary Kay Carlson, Chargé d'Affaires at the US Embassy in New Delhi, said US-India ties have been "growing every year with more trade, more travel, and greater people-to-people ties". 



"The Global Entrepreneurship Summit is the latest example of how we are working together to advance the promise of an increasingly digital world and the remarkable entrepreneurial skills of our people to promote prosperity," Carlson said. 



"These are goals President Trump and Prime Minister Modi set for our two nations after their meeting in June in Washington," she added while thanking the city of Hyderabad for hosting the event. 



The three-day summit, which in the past has been hosted by the US State Department, aims to connect American entrepreneurs and investors to their international counterparts, according to the State Department's website.



Trump's daughter has previously faced criticism for acting as a surrogate for her father in international affairs, The Hill magazine reported. 



In July, she was heavily criticised after she briefly sat in for her father at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
