New Delhi: Google CEO Sundar Pichai met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday in New Delhi and said it is inspiring to see the rapid pace of technological change under his leadership.

Pichai, CEO, Google and Alphabet, said he looked forward to continuing strong partnership and supporting India’s G20 presidency to advance an open internet that works for all.

Look forward to continuing our strong partnership and supporting India’s G20 presidency to advance an open, connected internet that works for all, Pichai said in a tweet.

India formally assumed G20 Presidency on December 1 this year from Indonesia.

During the day, Pichai also called on President Droupadi Murmu at Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi.

Murmu described the Google CEO as a symbol of ‘Indian talent and wisdom’.

Earlier this month, India’s Ambassador to the US Taranjit Singh Sandhu formally handed over Padma Bhushan, India’s third-highest civilian award, to Pichai in San Fransisco.

“Delighted to hand over Padma Bhushan to Google CEO Sundar Pichai in San Francisco. His inspirational journey from Madurai to Mountain View, strengthening India-America economic and tech ties, reaffirms Indian talent’s contribution to global innovation,” Sandhu had said in a tweet.
