Benjamin Netanyahu will also attend an event at the International Centre for Entrepreneurship and Technology (iCreate) later on Wednesday.

At the Ahmedabad airport, on Wednesday morning, Israeli PM Netanyahu and his wife Sara Netanyahu were received by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
However, Netanyahu isn't the only world leader who has come to Gujarat.
In September 2017, Japan PM Shinzo Abe had arrived in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, for the 12th India-Japan annual dialogue and met Narendra Modi.
PM Narendra Modi, in September 2014, also hosted another Asian leader, Chinese President Xi Jinping, in Gujarat’s commercial capital.
Modi, soon after Jinping's arrival, took him for a tour of Sabarmati Ashram, for which Xi sported an Indian look. The tour also included a visit to Gandhi’s personal quarters. Here Chinese President tried his hand at the charkha (the spinning wheel).
Both also took a stroll along the Sabarmati river before sitting down to a dinner along the riverfront.
Gujarat is home state of PM Narendra Modi.
