The Principal Secretary to Prime Minister, the Additional Principal Secretary to PM and the Cabinet Secretary will be in attendance alongside the secretaries of all ministries.

Recently, India and Maldives agreed to launch a ferry service connecting the two countries when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Maldivian President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih stressed on the need to improve connectivity between the two countries.

Modi's modus operandi is every inch the populist leader. The visit is regarded as a move to express solidarity with the neighbouring nation in the wake of the Easter Sunday attacks. External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said the two leaders held warm discussions. The bombings on three churches and three luxury hotels left 258 people dead. "I also requested that India work closely with Sri Lanka's security forces, providing them with counter-terrorism training and logistical support", Wickremesinghe said today.

His choice of the Maldives and Sri Lanka for his first overseas trip since being re-elected this spring "underlines the continued emphasis that the government lays on the "neighbourhood first" policy", Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said ahead of Modi's trip.

"Given the huge mandate we got, some people think expectations and aspirations (on the government) have increased".

"Modi said he is proud of the team. Democracy is our tradition and there is democracy in our ethos". India also has extended credit to develop rail transport and a water project.

The Maldives mended ties with India with Solih's election as president past year.

The Prime Minister said that all departments must seek to leverage the upcoming milestone of 75 years of independence, which can inspire people to make a contribution for the betterment of the country. This is due to Indian culture and tradition. Like US President Donald Trump, Modi is an avid fan of twitter with every moment recorded on the social media platform for consumption by his almost 50 million followers. The PMO called the statue "a special gift from a special friend".
