A Trump-branded complex under construction in Guragon a fast-growing city outside New Delhi Feb. 16 2018. India is the Trump Organization's biggest international market with four real estate projects underway The Trumps and their partners pitch buyer

"The idea that the president's son would be going and shilling the president's brand at same time Donald Trump is president and is managing strategic and foreign relations with India - that is just weird", said Daniel S Markey, who helped coordinate South Asia policy at the State Department during the George W Bush administration. M3M is building the Gurgaon towers in a partnership with the Trump Organization's main India representative, Tribeca Developers.

For miles upon miles, the landscape is little more than tin-roofed huts for construction laborers and tiny makeshift food shacks to keep them fed.

He was replying to a question during a meeting with senior editors on why Trump Organisation choose to build ultra luxury apartments in India first than in China.

The Trump development encompasses two towers with a total of 254 "ultra luxury" units, according to the company, each selling for up to $1.5 million.

He will also visit the cities of Kolkata, where a new project is set to break ground, and Pune, the only project that has been completed of the four. "India is a hierarchical society", he said.

Sony to Enter the Ride-Hailing Business in Japan
It is unclear as to why Sony suddenly wants to get into the taxi/transportation business, but it could be an interesting approach. Local rivals, such as Nihon Kotsu Co., Tokyo's largest cab company, have already released popular taxi-hailing apps.

But he's also planning to deliver a foreign policy speech on Indo-Pacific relations at an event with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"Because I am not a new comer, I have seen changes during the last decade, certainly over last couple of years", he said on how India has changed for better with the government cracking down on corruption and benami deals in real estate. The Trump family's financial interests in India could also call into question the president's objectivity in dealing with the country, they said.

"It will open up the country to much more outside investment from places like United States", he said.

Trump Jr., the executive vice president of the Trump Organization will meet investors and business leaders where his family has real estate projects, namely Kolkata, Mumbai, Pune, and Gurugram. The fifth one which is expected to be a commercial office project is likely to be launched soon.

Donald Trump pulling out all the stops on a visit to his company's biggest global market. The family earned up to $3 million in royalties in 2016. The marketing materials, however, don't mention the president - his name and image, as well as that of his daughter Ivanka, who joined his administration, were removed from brochures, websites and billboards from projects in India and elsewhere in the world. The high-end 600,000-700,000 sq ft commercial project to come up on Gurgaon's Golf Course Extension Road will be built by IREO alongside a retail complex, the company had stated while announcing with tie-up then.
