NEW DELHI: US President Donald Trump will meet executives of large Indian companies with interests in the United States as he looks to drum up investments during his visit to New Delhi this month.
Executives of some of the companies expected to attend the meeting include Indian oil & gas company Reliance Industries , diversified group Tata Sons and auto sector companies such as Bharat Forge, Mahindra and Mahindra and Motherson, industry and business sources said.
