Prime Minister on Friday said the world wants to hear "directly from the horse's mouth" about India's policies and growth potential and he will feel proud to tell the success story of 125 crore Indians in.

He said demonetisation was not just a change of currency and the way it was carried out got the world's respect. On Tuesday, he will interact with global business community members, besides delivering his keynote address.

In an interview with Times Now on Sunday, Modi said India had demonstrated its economic prowess to the world, which is keen to learn about India directly.

Before his departure, Mr Modi said India's engagement with the outside world in recent years "has become effectively multi-dimensional" and that these will boost further strengthen economic ties with various countries.

At Davos, I look forward to sharing my vision for Indias future engagement with the worldwide community.

He said the suggestion that the country's foreign policy was based on Pakistan was wrong but stressed that the world was uniting against those sympathetic towards terrorists, an apparent reference to the neighbouring country.

Now that it will be open to the general public, the goal is to learn more about how to make it work for everyone, said Puerini. Sleek black cameras monitoring from above and weight sensors in the shelves help Amazon determine exactly what people take.

On the task before him in the last one-and-half years of his government, Modi said providing electricity to four crore families who still do not have power and completing the programmes and schemes started for the benefit of the common man would be the priority.

The evening will also see a ballet performance, while India will host the "welcome reception" with the country's "exquisite cuisine and age-old Yoga heritage as well as the spirit of a young, innovative New India".

He added: "The existing and emerging challenges to the contemporary worldwide system and global governance architecture deserve serious attention of leaders, governments, policy makers, corporates and civil societies around the world". "These 60 companies are across 26 different sectors and the market cap of all these companies is $3.3 trillion", said Ramesh Abhishek, secretary, department of industrial policy and promotion.

"We are looking forward to prime minister's interaction with the CEOs of such scale and stature because of the opportunities that India provides today", Abhishek said.

He also "welcomed" US President Donald Trump for raising voice against terrorism.

During his 24-hour-visit, described by officials as "short but very focused", PM Modi will also host a dinner for CEOs from across the world, 20 of Indian companies and 40 from elsewhere, on Monday evening and will interact with a large gathering of 120 members of WEF's worldwide business community on Tuesday. Gokhale ruled out a meeting between Modi and Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, who will also be in Davos.
