Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri will arrive in India on Sunday for a three-day visit, during which he will hold talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to enhance cooperation in key sectors such as the economy, nuclear technology and space. A high-level delegation comprising the Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies Emilio Monzo, Minister of Foreign Affairs Jorge Faurie, and senior officials will be accompanying Mr. Macri, according to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA).
Argentina’s first lady Juliana Awada will also be accompanying Mr. Macri.
The President will arrive in Agra on February 17. A day later, he will hold delegation-level talks with Mr. Modi and have other official engagements. He will travel to Mumbai on February 19. The state visit of Mr. Macri is taking place on the 70th year of formal diplomatic relations between the two countries.
Mr. Macri’s visit follows Mr. Modi travelling to Argentina in late 2018 for the G20 summit, during which they had a “very productive” bilateral meeting. Mr. Macri will also meet President Ram Nath Kovind.
