The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has said that Apple CEO Tim Cook has lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his idea of 'Digital India', adding that the former has expressed his desire to be a part of this 'game-changing' initiative.
"Tim Cook has expressed his great desire to be a part of Prime Minister Modi's 'Digital India' initiative, and he also said it was a game changer," said MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup.
"The Prime Minister had also discussed 'Apple Pay' with Tim Cook so that ways could be explored in using it for Jan Dhan Yojna", he told the media in San Jose.
The Indian Prime Minister and the Apple CEO had a one-on-one meeting at the city's Hotel Fairmont.
Reports suggest that Apple is looking to invest in building manufacturing capacities in India, which could come as a major boost for Prime Minister Modis 'Make in India' project.
