Trade, commerce to drive India-US ties: Modi

New Delhi, April 18: BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Friday said that trade, commerce and technology would be the driving factors in Indo-US diplomatic relations if the BJP came to power at the centre.

“It is in India’s interest to promote trade, commerce and technology. We will do whatever is necessary to that effect,” Modi told CNBC Awaaz when he was asked how he planned to improve the deteriorating relations with the US.

Modi said the parameters of diplomacy have changed drastically in the post-globalisation era.

“Today foreign policy revolves around trade, commerce and technology,” Modi asserted.
