Here is all you need to know:

  1. When is Donald Trump visiting India?
    President Trump is scheduled to visit Ahmedabad, Agra and New Delhi on February 24 and 25.
  2. Who all are accompanying him?
    Apart from First lady Melania, Trump’s daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner are also accompanying him along with a high powered delegation. US National Security Advisor Robert O' Brien, Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette are expected to be part of the delegation.
  3. What to expect from Trump’s India visit?
    India and the US are looking at signing around five pacts on cooperation in areas of intellectual property rights, trade facilitation and homeland security during Trump's maiden visit to India. Boosting 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.

    According to CARE Ratings, the US is India’s largest trading partner in terms of exports (accounting for 15.9 per cent of total exports from India in FY19) while it is the second-largest trading partner in terms of imports (6.9 per cent of total imports to India). India’s exports to the US grew at compounded annual growth rate of 5.4 per cent during FY15 to FY19 and are significantly lower than India’s imports from the US, which grew at CAGR of 13 per cent.
  5. Will there be a mega trade deal?
    Trump downplayed the expectations of a trade deal with India during his visit, and said the two countries could make a "tremendous" trade deal. The US president also indicated that the talks on trade might slow down, if he did not get a good deal.
