Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday left for Davos to participate the World Economic Forum annual meet.

Oli also invited Modi to visit Ram Janaki Temple and the holy site of Muktinath, said Adhikari. A day before his visit to Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum, being attended by over 70 heads of states and governments, Modi said India's engagement with the outside world in the recent years has become "truly and effectively multi-dimensional covering the political, economic, people to people, security and other spheres". He will deliver the opening plenary address on 23rd of January.

Modi is also expected to talk about "a new, young and innovative India" besides his experiences with "cooperative federalism".

The theme of the WEF Annual Meeting this year is "Creating a shared future in a fractured world".

Reacting on world economic institutions like the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank lauding demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax (GST), the Prime Minister said, "For me, the certificate given by my countrymen is the biggest certificate, and my countrymen have given me their certificate".

"I am confident that these bilateral meetings would be fruitful and give a boost to our relations with these countries and further strengthen economic engagement".
