Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman touches down in India

NEW DELHI: Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrived in India on Tuesday for the second stage of his Asia tour.

He was greeted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi after his plane touched down at Air Force Station Palam in New Delhi at about 9.15 p.m. local time.

The crown prince is expected to announce a $1 billion investment in India’s infrastructure and farming sectors during his first visit to the nation.

He is accompanied by leading Saudi businessmen and officials.

India is hoping the crown prince will announce an investment in its National Investment Infrastructure Fund (NIIF), a sovereign wealth fund that includes private companies and foreign investors.

The Kingdom is India’s top energy supplier and home to more than 3.5 million Indian expatriates. 

Saudi Arabia's embassy in New Delhi tweeted a collection of Indian citizens welcoming the crown prince to their country for his first state visit.
