During the roundtable, Modi highlighted the fact that his government had taken over 7,000 big and small steps to improve the ease of doing business for foreign companies. Always impressed, energized by optimism and invention in India.

"If America becomes stronger, India will be a natural beneficiary", he said. They reaffirmed their commitment to growing with India and attest to its attractiveness as FDI destination.

The CEOs lauded the Modi's demonetisation and digitisation initiatives and the GST, Baglay said.

"Infrastructure growth and terrorism are the main matters to focus on and I want that Russian Federation should also support us on this", he added.

Praising Swaraj for promptly responding and acting on tweets by Indians in distress anywhere in the world, Modi said the External Affairs Ministry is now connected with the poorest of the poor in the country. "The US and India are both committed to combating all forms of terrorism and strengthening their cooperation in areas such as terrorism screening, intelligence and information sharing, terrorist use of the internet, and terrorist designation", the White House official said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said no country has questioned India's surgical strike against terrorist launchpads in Pakistan and "India has succeeded in telling the world about the need to uproot the menace of terrorism".
