Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday exchanged views with Barack Obama on the sidelines of the G20 summit here with the US President praising the "bold policy" move on GST reform in a "difficult" global economic scenario. Modi first met Obama briefly when they were onstage to pose for a family photograph at the G20 Summit venue in this eastern Chinese city.
The two leaders had another opportunity to exchange views during an informal evening programme. Obama in his intervention during the G20 summit praised Modi for the recent tax reform as an example of "bold policy" in an otherwise "difficult global economic scenario". On August 8, Parliament cleared the landmark Constitution (122nd Amendment) Bill, 2014, on the Goods and Services Tax.
