New York: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to visit India with a trade mission.

Modi extended the invitation to Christie when the latter called on him at the New York Palace hotel, where the Prime Minister is staying for attending the annual session of the UN General Assembly.

Christie, a popular Republican politician and a 2016 presidential election aspirant, has accepted the invitation to visit India with a trade delegation sometime next year, said Andy Shenoy, director on the Board of United Nations Development Corporation who played a major role in coordinating this important meeting.

Modi and Christie held discussions on the hurricane Sandy's effect on business and life of people in New Jersey.

The two leaders shared their thoughts on disaster management.
