Ivanka to lead American team for business summit in India

Ivanka Trump, who is leading the USA delegation, will also make remarks at the opening session themed "Be the change: women's entrepreneurial leadership".

In addition to the Global Entrepreneurship Network, several United States companies such as Amazon, Amway, CNBC, Cognizant, Kauffman Foundation, Salesforce, Silicon Valley Bank and Walmart are supporting the GES 2017. Katherine Hadda, US Consul General, Hyderabad, said the GES was an opportunity to promote women and women's economic opportunities, support entrepreneurship and foster economic growth and prosperity for all.

The summit was started during Obama's tenure in the White House, and CNN noted that a change in the State Department's approach to the event would be expected. "It's now another rift between the White House and State at a time when Rex Tillerson doesn't need any more problems with the President", the official said.

The source added that Rex Tillerson feels slighted that he's suppose to be the nation's top diplomat yet Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have "stepped all over him" for a long time.

AP's Economic Development Board (EDB) chief executive J Krishna Kishore pursued the issue with the U.S. authorities on behalf of the State government, but to no avail, they said.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert reportedly told CNN, "The Department is committed to supporting women's economic empowerment and entrepreneurship, and the Summit is a prime opportunity to showcase the importance of these themes".




At an event that is likely to take place on the sidelines of Global Entrepreneurs Summit, Lakshmi Manchu is likely to join as a panelist.

Still, State Department leadership has lately emphasised a commitment to forging a stronger relationship with India.

Ivanka is reportedly being billed as the "star attraction" of the summit in the Indian press.

The CNN report claimed that multiple US State Department officials, as well as a source close to the White House, had confirmed Tillerson's decision to not send senior State Department officials to the GES, 2017. In a way to snub the first daughter, he's refusing to send any senior officials from the State Department.

A spokesperson for the State Department who provided a list of senior government officials attending did not include any senior State Department officials.

Ivanka Trump's spokesman declined to comment on the story.
