Macri will hold delegation-level talks with Modi and have other official engagements on Monday. During his visit, President Macri will also meet President Ram Nath Kovind. He will travel to Mumbai on February 19. He is also likely to visit Agra during his trip.
Macri’s visit to India follows Modi travelling to Argentina in late 2018 for the G20 summit, during which the leaders had a “very productive” bilateral meeting.
The trade between the two sides stands at around USD 3 billion.
“This visit will provide an opportunity to the two sides to review progress in bilateral ties and to explore new avenues of cooperation,” the MEA had said.
