New York, Sept 14: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Sunday announced that prime minister Narendra Modi will visit Facebook’s headquarters in California for a townhall question and answer session on September 27.
During the visit, Modi and Zuckerberg will discuss how communities can work together to address social and economic challenges.
“I’m excited to announce that prime minister Narendra Modi of India will be visiting Facebook hq later this month for a Townhall Q&A,” Zuckerberg wrote in a post on Facebook.
Zuckerberg asked Facebook users to send in their questions for the session and said, “please ask them in the comments below (the post) and we’ll try to get to as many as possible.”
The live video of the session will be available on Zuckerberg’s Facebook page and also on PM Modi’s official page in the social media website.
Recalling his meeting with prime minister Modi in India last year, the Facebook CEO wrote,”…It’s an honour to have the chance to host him here at Facebook.”
India has the largest Facebook userbase outside the US. In June, the company had said 125 million users of its global base of 1.44 billion come from India.
Last year, Zuckerberg had made his maiden trip to India. The young billionaire had called on prime minister Narendra Modi to discuss digital expansion in the country.
