Modi hoping for ‘productive discussions’

INDIAN Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday that he was looking forward to “productive discussions” at the BRICS summit in Xiamen.

Modi said his country attached high importance to the summit.

“India had the privilege of hosting the previous summit in Goa in October last year. I look forward to building upon the results and outcomes of the Goa Summit,” Modi said in a statement on his Facebook page.

“I also look forward to productive discussions and positive outcomes that will support the agenda of a stronger BRICS partnership under the chairmanship of China,” he said, adding that he will also have bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the summit.

“We will also interact with the BRICS Business Council represented by captains of industry from all five countries. In addition, I look forward to engaging with leaders of nine other countries, including BRICS partners, in an Emerging Markets and Developing Countries Dialogue ...” Modi said.

After the summit, Modi will travel to Myanmar. He said he was looking forward to meeting Myanmar President U Htin Kyaw and State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi.

“We will also look at strengthening our existing cooperation on security and counterterrorism, trade and investment, skill development, infrastructure and energy, and culture,” he said.

He was confident the visit would “open a bright new chapter in India-Myanmar relations.”
