Trump Jr. to launch Trump Towers project in India

The Gurgaon Trum Towers comes with 254 “ultra luxury” units

"Trump has arrived. Have you?" read the advertisement, inviting buyers to book their apartments in Trump Towers by Wednesday "for a conversation and dinner" with Trump Jr on Friday.

But Trump Jr. did not respond to a question from CNN outside the New Delhi meeting about whether his visit to the Trump Organization's biggest worldwide market would fuel concerns about mixing business and politics.

Later in the week, he is expected to make a speech about Indo-Pacific relations at a New Delhi business summit, sharing the stage with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"Trump's company is literally selling access to the president's son overseas", said Jordan Libowitz, the communications director for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

In an interview last week, cited by The Guardian, Donald Trump Jr said he had spent almost a decade "cultivating relationships in India" and that the firm was "now seeing the response of that effort".

Donald Trump Jnr posed for photos Tuesday morning with Indian developers, who are building the complexes in four cities.

Trump Jr.'s visit to India comes after his sister, Ivanka, visited Hyderabad in November previous year to attend the Global Entrepreneurship Summit.(GES).

Trump Jr. took on day-to-day control of the Trump Organization when his father became president in 2016.

Trump Junior, however, declined to disclose the revenue model for the India business and what Trump Organisation would earn.

Though widely criticised for pushing business interest under the Trump brand, Trump Jr in an interview with New York Times last week said he has been "cultivating relationships in India for a decade and that his company was "now seeing the response of that effort".

Details of his full remarks have yet to be disclosed, but cooperation between India nations in the Pacific region and the US may be addressed.

India is Trump Organisation's biggest global market, with four real estate projects underway in Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata, and Gurugram.

According to a financial disclosure report, India is the Trump Organization's largest market outside the United States.

Talking about his trip earlier this month, Trump Jr. said, "India is such an incredible country and our brand has enjoyed tremendous success in the region for many years".

In Gurgaon, the sprawling and ever-growing New Delhi satellite city where a new Trump Towers will eventually rise, the construction site is just mountains of dirt and unruly shrubbery, one of many residential projects yet to be built.
