Ivanka Trump pushes & # 39; women first, prosperity for all & # 39; in India


HYDERABAD, India – Ivanka Trump's solo departure to a business conference in India met with a small collective yawn in the streets of the technological city of Hyderabad.

The White House's chief advisor will head the Global Entrepreneurs Summit on Tuesday, which aims to support women entrepreneurs and promote global economic growth.

Throughout the city of 7.75 million people, armies of workers have been responsible for sweeping the streets without garbage and adorning tunnels, bridges and trees with festive lights and rainbow painted colors.

Thousands of beggars and homeless people have also been arrested and expelled from the streets of the city.

Large billboards with portraits and quotes from Trump have increased, becoming a new popular backdrop for the mbades taking selfie.

On Tuesday, it was also declared a government holiday Local

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will join Trump at the opening and then receive it for dinner at the luxurious Falaknuma Palace Hotel.

But many locals said they knew little about the president's daughter, who is also an entrepreneur in her own right.

Syed Ali, a 31-year-old driver born and raised in Hyderabad, had never heard of Ivanka Trump until a few weeks ago and said he would not necessarily recognize her unless he saw one of his Kiosks, but marveled at the transformation of the city linked to it

"I had never heard Ivanka's name, but I knew about his father, President Trump," Ali told NBC News.

Damaynti Basu was also a bit puzzled.

"Ivanka may not be a household name here in India, but his visit would undoubtedly promote the India-United States business relationship informally," said the teacher. "This trip certainly helps your own promotion and also our city."
