Ivanka to speak at three sessions of GES

The report states that it has "more to do with the fact Ivanka Trump is leading the USA delegation this year".

Other prominent speakers include John Chambers, Chairman, USISPF; Cherie Blair, Founder, Cherie Blair Foundation for Women; Prem Watsa, Chairman and CEO, Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd; Marcus Wallenberg, Chairman of Swedish financial group SEB; Chanda Kochhar, Managing Director and CEO, ICICI Bank, and Tessy Thomas, Director, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

In addition to the Global Entrepreneurship Network, several USA companies such as Amazon, Amway, CNBC, Cognizant, Kauffman Foundation, Salesforce, Silicon Valley Bank and Walmart are supporting the GES 2017.

Chhillar and actor Sonam Kapoor will speak in a session on "The Female Influencer: Advancing Women's Opportunities in the Media Industry".

GES will highlight India's enabling environment for innovation and entrepreneurship - including actions by the government to increase the ease of doing business, eliminating unnecessary regulations and supporting start-ups.

This year's summit theme demonstrates the commitment of the USA and Indian governments to the principle that when women are economically empowered, their communities and countries thrive, said Kant.

Being held at the Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC) in Hitec City, the Information Technology hub, the event will bring together 1,500 emerging entrepreneurs and investors, and ecosystem supporters from 150 countries for training and mentoring sessions, networking and investment matchmaking. India was given the opportunity to host GES during Modi's USA visit in June.

If the reports are true, then they do not bode well for the Indian establishment which had hoped to bill the Summit as a major endorsement by the United States of Modi's initiatives on making India a key destination for entrepreneurial investment.

Modi and Ivanka Trump along with 100 special guests would also attend a special dinner tomorrow at the Falaknuma Palace, now a plush hotel, in the old city, Hyderabad's Police Commissioner V V Srinivasa Rao said.

Addressing a press conference along with Kenneth Juster, the US Ambassador to India, Mr Kant said that Union ministers Sushma Swaraj, Nirmala Sitharaman and Suresh Prabhu would participate in the Summit.

Unprecedented security arrangements have been made for the GES with the deployment of over 10,000 policemen. She was invited for the summit earlier this year by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his state visit to the US.
