New Delhi: After assuming office in June 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has visited several countries in a bid to hard sell his government’s ‘Make In India’ campaign and to boost bilateral relations.
Since assuming office, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has visited 45 countries, totaling 56 foreign trips, a majority of which were official state visits and spent close to 55 days abroad.
His first foreign destination was the neighboring Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, which has remained one of India’s closest allies for decades. His last foreign visit was to South Korea. Some of his important foreign visits include the United States of America, Japan, China, Germany and Sri Lanka. Modi visited USA a whopping 4 times.
Air India has been the biggest beneficiary in Modi’s endeavors. But Modi has ditched them in last 2 months as he has not visited a single country. This due to the election season in India where he has to travel daily for different meets and rallies. Air India has accounted for major losses in these two months and now want to enter the helicopter business, as Modi is using helicopters for his election travels.
