Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged American students to come to India during his first official stop in Washington, D.C. Wednesday, as he met with US First Lady Jill Bidenat the National Science Foundation in Alexandria, Virginia.

The Indian prime minister said, “To maintain a growth momentum, India and the US need a pipeline of talent. On one hand, the US has top-class educational institutions & advanced technologies. On the other hand, India has the world's biggest youth factory. That is why, I belive that the India-US partnership will prove to be the engine of sustainable and inclusive global growth," Reuters reported.

“We can think of starting an India-US teachers' exchange programme. To increase the engagement of scientists & entrepreneurs across the world with Indian institutions, we started GIAN - Global Initiative of Academic Networks - in 2015", news agency ANI reported quoting PM Modi.

“Hundreds of United States teachers are already in India, participating in a tech partnership."

“I am delighted to tell you that under this, 750 faculty members from the US have come to India"in a tech partnership, the Indian prime minister added.

“I think together, both the countries should also organise hackathons on different issues. This may offer solutions to several of the current problems as well as new ideas for the future," he said.

“Under Skill India, we have skilled over 50 million people in the field of artificial intelligence, blockchain, drone and others," PM Modi added.

First lady Jill Biden also advocated for educational collaboration between the two countries.

She said “The education is the cornerstone of the bond between India and the United States. Students from both countries are learning and growing alongside each other, discovering the people that they want to become and building a better world together. Working side by side, our nations can create a safer, healthier, more prosperous future for everyone."
