PM Modi, South Korean President Moon Jae-in to hold delegation level talks today

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will hold delegation level talks in New Delhi today. A number of agreements are expected to be signed after the talks. 

Both leaders will also address CEO's roundtable. Mr Moon will also meet President Ram Nath Kovind. Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu will call on the visiting dignitary. Mr Moon will be given a ceremonial reception at the forecourts of Rashtrapati Bhavan today. 
Mr Moon, accompanied by wife Kim Jung-sook, arrived in New on Sunday evening on a 4-day visit to India. This is Mr Moon's first-ever state visit to India after he took over as the President last year.
Yesterday, Prime Minister Modi and Korean President Moon jointly inaugurated the world's largest mobile phone manufacturing plant set up by Samsung in Noida. 

The two leaders took a metro ride to the Samsung manufacturing unit in Noida. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that India's growing economy and the burgeoning Neo Middle Class provides vast opportunities for investment. He said, over the last 4 years, the number of mobile factories have jumped from 2 to 120, which has lead to employment opportunities for nearly 4 lakh youth.
Recounting his government's digital India push, Mr Modi said internet data is available at very low rates and fibre network connected to over 1 lakh Gram Panchayats of the country. All this indicates the ushering in of the digital revolution in the country, Prime Minister said. 

He said, GeM or Government e Market is enabling the Government to procure commodities directly from producers. This has benefitted medium and small entrepreneurs resulting in transparency in public procurement, he said. Mr Modi said, be it paying for electricity-water bills, school college admissions, PF and Pension, nearly all such services are being provided online. Nearly 3 lakh common service centres across the country are working serving the villagers, he said.
Addressing the gathering, South Korean President Moon Jae recalled the decades long relations between India and South Korea and said that India and Korea can are now riding the digital wave to achieve growth.
