Donald Trump Jr. visits India to help sell apartments

The prime agenda of Donald Trump Jr's visit to India is likely to hold business meetings to endorse his luxurious residential project - Trump Towers.

Trump Jr will arrive in Delhi on Monday for a week-long visit to promote the luxury properties under development in India - the Trump Organization's largest global market.

Beginning Tuesday, the junior Trump will have a full schedule of meet-and-greets with investors and business leaders throughout India where the Trump family has real estate projects - Mumbai, the New Delhi suburb of Gurgaon and the eastern city of Kolkata.

The Trump Organisation has licensing agreements with Indian business partners who develop the properties and then acquire the Trump brand in exchange for a fee.

As part of a marketing-campaign, investors in the project are being given a chance to have "conversation and dinner" with Trump Jr.

At the global summit Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also be present and speak on the topic of "Preparing India for the Future".

"The idea that the president's son would be going and shilling the president's brand at the same time Donald Trump is president and is managing strategic and foreign relations with India - that is just freaky", he told The New York Times.

What shall I gift my valentine?
Getting a gift or receiving flowers from anyone, including yourself, will make you feel good, loved and all things attractive . If you're single , you go about your daily life and try to avoid all the romance being shoved down your throat.

"We know that father and son talk all the time, and discuss business", Norman Eisen, a Brookings Institution senior fellow and chairman of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, told CNN.

He will also visit Kolkata, where the construction of a project with 137 luxury units will begin soon.

Mr Trump Jr, the son of the U.S. president and head of the family business, will be helping to drum up sales of opulent flats in four cities that could net profits of more than $1bn. However, local media have reported that he is slated to visit other Trump projects across India.

For the New-York based company, which earns an annual revenue of $9.5 billion, India represents the biggest market outside the US.

Talking about his trip earlier this month, Trump Jr. said, "India is such an incredible country and our brand has enjoyed tremendous success in the region for many years".

India is Trump Organisation's biggest worldwide market, with four real estate projects underway in Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata, and Gurugram.

Daniel S Markey, who worked on South Asia policy for the State Department during the George W Bush administration, said he was surprised by the involvement of Mr Trump Jr in an Indian business deal.
