New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the doyens of Indian Industry here tomorrow at the Annual General Meeting of Ficci, his first address to an AGM
of a national business association after becoming the premier.
"After the inaugural session, Modi will interact with all the past presidents of Ficci," said the chamber.

The AGM, with the theme 'Indian Business in a New India', will also be addressed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on 14 December. Senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia will also address a special session.
