An elaborate ceremony has been planned in Ahmedabad for their visit. There will be a roadshow by the two leaders from the Ahmedabad airport to ‘Motera Stadium’, which is as long as 22 kilometres.

Several tableaus will be lined up on the streets of the city with artists performing folk dances.

The two dignitaries will make a quick stopover at Sabarmati Ashram before making their way to the stadium.

According to sources, a program dubbed as ‘Namaste Trump’ will be held inside the stadium where both Trump and Modi will address a large gathering estimated around 1.25 lakhs.

Ahead of his visit, Donald Trump on Thursday said the two countries could make a “tremendous” trade deal. “We’re going to India, and we may make a tremendous deal there,” Trump said in his commencement address at the Hope for Prisoners Graduation Ceremony in Las Vegas.

“Maybe we’ll slow down. We’ll do it after the election. I think that could happen too. So, we’ll see what happens,” he said adding, “But we’re only making deals if they’re good deals because we’re putting America first. Whether people like it or not, we’re putting America first,” Trump said.

President Trump is set to undertake many official engagements in New Delhi and Gujarat and “interact with a wide cross-section of Indian society” on this trip.

Talk’s on counter-terror cooperation, deepening engagement in the Indo-Pacific region, augmenting defence and trade ties and India’s concerns over H1B visas are expected to figure in talks between Trump and Modi.
