Three-Nation Visit To Focus On Economic Agenda, Job Creation: Modi

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said his tour to France, Germany and Canada from April 10-16 would be focused on supporting India's national economic agenda through programmes like Make in India in order to create jobs for the youth.

In a series of tweets, linked to his Facebook post, Modi spoke about his upcoming three-nation tour - his second overseas visit this year after to the Indian Ocean countries of Seychelles, Mauritius and Sri Lanka earlier in March.

"My France, Germany and Canada visit is centred around supporting India's economic agenda and creating jobs for our youth. Will discuss strengthening India-France economic co-operation and visit some high-tech industrial units outside Paris. In Germany, Chancellor Merkel and I will jointly inaugurate Hannover Messe where India is a partner country. Looking forward to enhancing ties with Canada and interacting with leaders, captains of industry and diaspora in Canada," he tweeted.

"I am honouring long standing invitations from three of our most important partners, who have strong friendships with India."

On France, where he goes on the first leg, Modi said that he would "seek greater French involvement in our Make in India Programme, including in the defence manufacturing sector".
