Modi will be arriving in Washington, DC on September 22 and the next morning he will be meeting with the top American CEOs.

A meeting with Apple chief Tim Cook is also on the cards.

However, officials did not confirm the details of the meet and told ANI that the schedule is still being worked out.

After back-to-back meetings with top business leaders of the US, Modi is expected to meet Vice President Kamala Harris, the first person of Indian origin to reach that post.

As of now, there is no official announcement of the meeting.

The PM will also meet Australian Prime Minister Scot Morrison and Japanese counterpart Yoshihide Suga on the same day.

Modi will hold the first physical bilateral meeting with US President Joe Biden and participate in the first in-person Quad leaders' summit in Washington on September 24.

A dinner will also be organised during Modi's visit.

Since United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson's visit to Washington, DC, is also coinciding with that of Modi, there is a likelihood of them meeting too.

On September 24 evening, Modi will proceed to New York where he will deliver a speech at United Nations General Assembly.
