PM Modi and President Trump came together to address the Indian-American community at 'Howdy, Modi' event on Sunday in Houston. During the event, both leaders pledged to further strengthen the India-US ties.
Addressing the mega event, Trump said that India has never invested in the United States like this before, assuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again that America is looking forward to work with India to make the world's two largest democracies prosperous than ever before.
Highlighting the trade partnership between both countries, President Trump said that the US welcomes India's growing investments in Houston.
"Nations around the world are investing in the US because they know we have the best economy and the best workers in the world. They have never invested in our country like ever before. It's reciprocal because we are doing the same thing in India," he added.
He also said that no other issue is more important for the two countries than energy security.
