Ivanka Trump visits Golkonda Fort, skip a visit to the historic Charminar due to security reasons


Hyderabad: It will not be the Charminar, but the equally historic Fort Golkonda as Ivanka Trump visited on Wednesday afternoon before ending her two-day visit to India for the 2017 World Entrepreneurship Summit.

Ivanka, daughter, and advisor to US President Donald Trump, turned to the iconic Charminar and planned a visit to the famous Lad Bazaar or wristband market for security reasons.

After a private lunch after a GES session, Ivanka reached the fort a little after 3 pm and arrived in a convoy of 17 cars. She spent about 45 minutes before leaving for the Trident Hotel.

The area near the fort had since been under a security blanket with closed shops and pedestrians at a distance. US security agents have been camping here for two days.

Ivanka also had to attend a dinner on the lawns of Golkonda Fort on Wednesday, but this was also canceled because she was flying to the United States early.

Following Tuesday’s decisive speech at the US-India business summit, Ivanka, 36, spoke on Wednesday morning of a plenary session on “We Can Do It!” Innovations in the development of labor and vocational training.

“Technology is an important driver of entrepreneurship because a lot of women leave and say it does not work for me.” It encourages them to move forward, reduces barriers to starting new businesses and creates new opportunities for entrepreneurship. Flexibility over time. Ivanka said she emphasized how technology can empower women professionally and personally.

Golkonda or “Round Hill” is located 11 kilometers from the city of Hyderabad and was the capital of the Sultanate of the Qutb Shahi Dynasty (1518 to 1687). The region is surrounded by its mines and has produced famous jewels such as the Koh-i-Noor.
