For Indians living and working abroad, no other Prime Minister has made an earnest connection with them as much as Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Since he became Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has met the Indian diaspora living in countries across the world. Many countries he has visited once but they have been the first time visits by any Prime Minister. This includes :
Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bhutan, Brazil, Canada, Fiji, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Jordan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Maldives, Mauritius, Mexico, Mongolia, Mozambique, Netherlands, Oman, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Portugal, Qatar, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Vietnam
Then there have been countries he visited twice, which include
Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Myanmar, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Uzbekistan
While France, Japan, Germany, Nepal, Russia, Singapore, China and United States he has visited on three occasions and more.
Evidently, he has now earned both admiration and respect amount Indians living abroad while also, Indians have benefited in these countries due to the relationship that Prime Minister Modi has struck with the Presidents and Prime Ministers of these countries. Call it the impact of this that Rahul Gandhi has started visiting Indians settled abroad. His most recent being his visit to UAE which is also the first time he is in United Arab Emirates. After a warm welcome at UAE, Congress President Rahul Gandhi interacted with the Indian overseas and student communities during his maiden visit. He also met some UAE ministers during his two-day visit to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The programme celebrated the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Prior to this, he has addressed such public gatherings in the US, London, Germany and Bahrain. Bureau report – NMTV News.
