Ivanka Trump, the daughter of US President Donald Trump will arrive at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad in the early hours of 28 November to attend Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) 2107 in Hyderabad and will leave in the evening of 29 November.

In the wake of Manchu Family maintaining close relations with BJP and Narendra Modi in particular, Lakshmi already got the honor of being followed by the Prime Minister on twitter on Woman's Day Eve.

On whether the event would result in any tangible outcome in trade or investments, NITI Aayog Chief Executive Officer Amitabh Kant said the summit was meant to help create an enabling ecosystem where entrepreneurs can innovate, forge global partnerships and grow. The theme for this GES is 'Women First, Prosperity for All'. "It is also critical for worldwide relations for prosperity and freedom of trade", said Juster, on the importance of the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES), which begins in Hyderabad on Tuesday. Ten countries, including Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, are sending all female delegations.

Following the inaugural, Ivanka, herself a successful entrepreneur, is scheduled to speak at the panel session on opening up opportunities for women entrepreneurs in their countries and communities.

This year's summit's theme demonstrates the commitment of the USA and Indian governments towards women empowerment. Eminent panelists such as Union defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Chanda Kochhar, MD and CEO ICICI Bank, Karen Quintos, CCO, Dell and Cherie Blair, of Cherie Blair Foundation for Women will also take part in these discussions along with Ivanka.

YouTube is finally removing child exploitation videos
Video-streaming giant YouTube is moving to crackdown on videos that depict children in disturbing situations. Despite that, it hasn't been enough to convince advertisers and concerned watchers.

Participants at this year's summit will represent four industry sectors - energy and infrastructure, health care and life sciences, financial technology and digital economy, and media and entertainment. India was given opportunity to host GES during Modi's U.S. visit in June.

US Ambassador to India Kenneth Juster on Monday said India can be the anchor for US business and investment in the Indo-Pacific region.

Modi and Ivanka Trump along with 100 special guests would also attend a special dinner tomorrow at the Falaknuma Palace, now a plush hotel, in the old city, Hyderabad's Police Commissioner V V Srinivasa Rao said.

Unprecedented security arrangements have been made for the GES with the deployment of over 10,000 policemen.
