PM Modi and US President Donald Trump will hold their first one-on-one meeting at the White House Oval Office in a few hours from now. 

Foreign investment and trade are likely to be the key points of discussion between the two heads of state, with the Indian PM expected to make a pitch for India as an attractive destination for investors. In an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal editorial, the Indian PM indicated that bilateral trade between the two countries was poised for a "multifold increase". 

Before his meeting with Trump, Modi will meet Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, as India eyes the purchase of more military equipment from the US.
