NEW YORK: Asserting that trade and commerce leads international relations in today's age, Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured the Indian-American community here that his government is determined to put the economy on an upward trajectory by focussing on key sectors like agriculture, manufacturing and services.

"In today's world, it is trade and commerce that leads international relations and drives the economies," Modi said at a dinner hosted in his honour by Indian Ambassador to the US, S Jaishankar.

Modi, after having addressed nearly 20,000 people of the Indian community at a rock-star style event in Madison Square Garden, spoke briefly to the select gathering of eminent men and women and underscored his government's focus and efforts to move forward on development and make India a magnet of investment.

"Our entire focus is on the growth of economic activity, on how to grow the economy be it agriculture, manufacturing or services," he said. "I believe that for a healthy economy, one-third agriculture, one-third manufacturing, one-third services sector - if all these grow simultaneously then even if one of the sectors faces a decline, the country's economy will not be immensely impacted."
