Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro to be the chief guest for Republic Day on 26th January 2020, it was accepted.
When Modi and Bolsonaro met in the BRICS (Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa) Summit, “the president of brazil accepted the invitation” said by external affairs minister.
Both leaders agreed to enhance the strategic partnership for the welfare of the two countries.
Many people view this invitation as mutual commercial and strategic relations that boost trade and investment in different sectors.
Did President Jair Bolsonaro came to India before?
No this will be his first visit to India after he becomes a politician, and also he will be the 3rd chief guest for the Republic day celebration of India. In 1996, Fernando Cardoso was the chief guest and in 2004, Lula da Silva attended the event as chief guest.
Our external affairs ministry said in a statement that, Modi is looking forward to discussing the matter of trade with Brazil president and bring the investments in agriculture and related practices may be technology, biofuels, equipment, etc.
President Bolsonaro also very enthusiastic to come to India, he also said he will bring a large business delegation along with him.
Narendra Modi welcomed the recent decision in granting visa-free travel for Indian citizens.
The Bolsonaro announced in October that Indians and Chinese wouldn’t require Visa for traveling to their country and it is not reciprocal initially.
In the previous months, Brazil allowed Japan, Australia, US and Canada Visa-free travel for a period of 90 days this measure spiked up the number of tourists visit their country by 25%.
India’s efforts in protecting the world population from terrorism have been backed by Brazil in the BRICS Summit.
As an economic point of view countries making Visa-free will boost the economy of that country by increasing more visitors, but only the leaders can take this step forward in order to get it, in this case, Modi has tried his best to get the Visa-free for Brazil.
