Hyderabad beefs-up security for Global Entrepreneurship Summit

HYDERABAD: The security has been beefed-up in Hyderabad ahead of the upcoming eighth annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit from Nov 28-30.

Some 1,500 foreign delegates are expected to attend the event being organised by Niti Aayog in collaboration with the US administration.

“We organised a cordon and search operation in-and-around the Golkonda fort and caught 35 unauthorised people,” a senior police officer said.

The highlight of the event is the visit of Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump's daughter, who will address the gathering along with PM Modi.

She is also one of the advisors to the US President.

This is the first time the Summit is being held in South Asia.

The organisers said the Summit would empower Indian entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas, build partnerships, secure funding, and create innovative products.

The theme for this year's summit is “Women First, Prosperity for All”.

"While we are working at the business level which is the key, we have the resources to do other things,” US Consul General Craig Hall said.

"While our economies are growing together to create wealth and prosperity, the two countries can do more together in space, in health, on inventing new technology. That kind of thing can be done," Hall had said.
