In January, this year, PM Costa was among the 30 people conferred the Pravasi Bhartiya Samman awards by President Pranab Mukherjee. The offer is still subject to congressional approval.

"From the halls of Congress to the Trump administration, United States leaders have placed an emphasis on ensuring American innovation is respected overseas", said Patrick Kilbride, Vice President of International Intellectual Property.

"We see this as the United States and India have mutual security interests that they want to advance, and we believe that the defence sales that are being discussed will help advance those", the official said. Hence, to call such a meeting of little effect is to ignore the significance, or the need, of India and the USA working together in support of their numerous shared objectives. "We very much want to avoid a situation that escalates tensions between the two", said the White House official. The deal would be the first such purchase by a country that is not a member of North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

Najib: DRM Hicom-Geely partnership will drive Proton to success

India, a big buyer of U.S. arms that was recently named by Washington as a major defence ally, wants to protect its 7,500-km (4,700-mile) coastline as Beijing expands its maritime trade routes and Chinese submarines increasingly lurk in regional waters. It is also expected to establish a network of honorary ambassadors based in India and Portugal to guide start-ups from both countries.

"We anticipate that their discussions will be broad- ranging, hitting on a variety of regional and global issues that would seek to advance our common priorities, including fighting terrorism, promoting economic growth and prosperity", the official added. Both the USA as well as India have a shared interest in the sea lanes of Asia being open to all without exception, including the waters to the east of India. We like to encourage that trend. Start-up sphere here is an interesting space for cooperation. The two have been in contact through the telephone before, and this first meeting between the heads of the two largest democracies in the world will be important in setting the contours of the future relationship between Delhi and Washington. "We are certainly eager to deepen the strategic partnership with India but we are also interested in continuing our co-operation with Pakistan", the official said.

PM Modi has left for the U.S. for his first meeting with President Trump after concluding his brief visit to Portugal during which the two nations signed 11 agreements.
