The US State Department and other American agencies in partnership with NITI Aayog, India's think tank, are organising GES, which seeks to create an environment that empowers innovators, particularly women, to take their ideas to the next level. This will be followed by a panel session on opening up opportunities for women entrepreneurs in their countries and communities, which will be moderated by John Chambers, Chairman Emeritus, Cisco with the panelists to include Ivanka, Sibongile Sambo, Managing Director, SRS Aviation and SRS Petroleum, India's Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Marcus Wallenberg, Chairman, SEB.

US Ambassador to India Kenneth I Juster on Monday said economic and security relationships between the two countries would have to reinforce each other to make this strategic pact a lasting one. This GES will focus on developing startups belonging to these four sectors across the globe namely: healthcare and life sciences, digital economy and financial technology, energy and infrastructure and media and entertainment. US President Donald Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump will lead a delegation from her country at the three-day event. PM Modi is also scheduled to attend the dinner. Ms Trump, a businesswoman herself, will be discussing issues of innovations, skill and training the next day.

Mr Kant said that the GES closing session would bring together key influencers who supported, promoted and funded female entrepreneurs, and it would be moderated by commerce minister Suresh Prabhu.

This year's summit's theme demonstrates the commitment of the U.S. and Indian governments towards women empowerment.
