PM Narendra Modi is set to address "Howdy, Modi!", a mega-event which will be attended by more than 50,000 people. "Howdy, Modi!" is an Indian-American community event which will be held in Houston, Texas and would give the world a glimpse into the contributions of Indian-Americans to the cultural, intellectual and social landscape of the US, said the event's organisers. US President Donald Trump will also be addressing the "Howdy, Modi!" event, underscoring the importance of the relationship between the US and India.
The event holds immense significance since India and the US which failed to agree upon a trade deal, with the US imposing tariffs on Indian steel and aluminum imports. After the event, PM Modi and President Trump will likely negotiate a limited trade deal.
PM Modi is visiting the US from September 21 to September 27 for the annual session of the United Nations General Assembly or UN General Assembly.
