India Prime Minister Narendra Modi Set for Facebook Town-Hall Q&A

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will join co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg for a town-hall Q&A Sept. 27 at the social network’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif.

Facebook announced another town-hall question-and-answer session, but this one will feature a special guest, as Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will join co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg at the social network’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif.

Zuckerberg announced the Q&A—which will take place at 9:30 a.m. PT/12:30 p.m. ET Sunday, Sept. 27—in a Facebook post:

I’m excited to announce that Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India will be visiting Facebook HQ later this month for a town-hall Q&A.

Prime Minister Modi and I will discuss how communities can work together to address social and economic challenges.

We want to hear your questions. Please ask them in the comments below and we’ll try to get to as many as possible.

The event will be on Sunday, Sept. 27 at 9:30 a.m. PT. I’ll post the live video here and it will also be on Prime Minister Modi’s page.

I had the chance to visit Prime Minister Modi in India last year, and it’s an honor to have the chance to host him here at Facebook.

Readers: Do you have anything you would like to ask Modi?
