WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday and chief executives of several U.S. companies, including Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) and Blackstone (NYSE:BX), two sources said.
At the White House meeting with Harris, Modi is expected to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic, greater cooperation in technology, space and other sectors, and supply chain issues, the sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.
Modi’s three-day Washington trip will be capped by a meeting with President Joe Biden at the White House on Friday.
Biden and Modi will also hold a “Quad” summit with the leaders of Australia and Japan, aiming to boost cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region amid China’s growing dominance in the area.
