As Palestine works to establish an worldwide multilateral mechanism of negotiations, the Palestinian leader stated that "India can play a role in this".

Modi's agenda will be driven by the fact that he had promised to offer "unwavering support" to the cause of Palestine during the visit of Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas here a year ago, "redefining the relationship" while taking it to the next level, sources told BusinessLine.

He will proceed to the venue of the World Government Summit where he will deliver a keynote address.

He said PM Modi's visit to the region reflects India's long-held position of supporting peace and stability in the region.

Mr Modi also asked the MPs to hold meetings at booth level to take details of various welfare schemes announced in the Budget to people and run intensive campaigns to propagate them, Mr Kumar said.

"These include an investment of $500 million in low-priced housing", Mridul Kumar said.

"We will discuss the recent updates with Prime Minister Modi, and the recent developments in the peace process, the bilateral relations, and the regional situations". "They are also looking at ports, logistic centres and food parks".

The investment from the UAE to India exceeds $11 billion.

Modi will straightaway head for a large community event at a stadium in the Omani capital. He will then hold talks with Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Al Said, who will host a banquet in the visiting dignitary's honour.

Kumar also tweeted a picture of Modi hugging the King. The port of Salala is of special importance for India while planes travelling further up in the West get refueling facility in Oman on a regular basis.
