Ivanka Trump, the daughter and advisor to the United States President Donald Trump who is leading the USA delegation at the GES 2017 was all praise for India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

She said at the G20 conference, the USA was a founding member of a bold, new initiative with the World Bank - the Women Entrepreneurs Finance Initiative, or WeFi.

Formerly a top executive at her family's company in NY and now a White House adviser, Ivanka Trump is scheduled to deliver a speech at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, and the Indian government pulled out all the stops before her arrival, according to NBC News.

The gathering, co-hosted by the US and India, comes as the two countries appear to be working to strengthen ties.

Referring to US President Donald Trump, and India-US ties, she asserted that as President Trump said earlier, India has a true friend in the White House.

Ivanka kicked off the global business summit calling for better opportunities for women entrepreneurs battling heavy odds around the world.

The summit this year is focused on promoting female entrepreneurship, which has been a key issue Trump both pledged to work on and to encourage her father to do so.

Modi stressed the importance of women in Indian economics and culture and noted that the Indian Constitution guarantees one-third representation to women in local government. People of India inspire us all. "The event, with 'Women First, Prosperity for All" is the first GES in which women are the majority - 52.5 per cent - of the participants. "The US Small Business Administration, for example, increased its lending to women by over 500 million dollars this year alone", she emphasised.

Trump, who is leading the US delegation to the conference, said, "Here in India I want to applaud Prime Minister Modi for his firm belief that progress of humanity is incomplete without the empowerment of women".
