Rivlin will also hold meetings with senior Indian officials and leaders of the Jewish community. Setting the stage for a prime ministerial visit from India in 2017, Israeli president Reuven Rivlin arrived here on a six-day visit on Monday.
Mr. Rivlin landed in Mumbai and then left for Delhi with a delegation of leading agriculture, defence and university figures of Israel. He is scheduled to receive a ceremonial welcome at the Rashtrapati Bhavan on Tuesday and will hold bilateral talks with President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Before embarking on the visit, Mr Rivlin took to Twitter and wrote in Hindi that he would focus on industrial and academic issues during his visit.
“Filled with pride as I depart for State visit to India to see how Israeli innovation is improving the lives of millions,” President Rivlin said on Twitter before leaving for India.
