Ivanka Trump Lands At Hyderabadicon

U.S. President Donald Trump’s advisor and daughter Ivanka Trump, who had arrived in Hyderabad early on Tuesday, will reach Global Entrepreneurship Summit venue at Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC) in Madhapur by 3 p.m.

Traffic congestion was reported at the airport for a few minutes as Ms. Trump’s convoy of vehicles was given a ‘green channel’ from the airport to the hotel. Tight security arrangements were made at the hotel. All the star hotels in and around Madhapur where the GES will commence at 4 p.m. were completely booked apparently for the over 1,500 foreign delegates attending the summit.

As Telangana readies to host the 2017 edition of the summit on Tuesday, strenuous efforts made by Andhra Pradesh to invite U.S. President Donald Trump’s daughter had failed to bring results.

The U.S. authorities turned down requests made by the Chandrababu Naidu-led Andhra government to have Ms. Trump visit the ‘sunrise’ State, highly-placed sources said.

The Andhra government, as part of its “brand building” efforts, had felt that a visit by Ms. Trump would bolster the State’s image internationally. It also wanted to line up several U.S. companies for investments, the sources said.

The State government had informed the U.S. Consulate that they were ready to organise the event either in Amaravati or Visakhapatnam, and had sought her time.

“But we were told that she would not be attending any other programme, apart from the GES and those in New Delhi. So, we did not get a chance to host her,” a senior official involved in the entire process said.

Prime Minister NarendraModi, who is arriving in Hyderabad to inaugurate the GES, will be flown in a helicopter to HICC from Miyapur where he will inaugurate the Metro Rail. He will travel in Metro Rail for a few minutes before reaching the GES venue.

Ms. Trump will lead a delegation from her country at the event.
