Shanghai, May 16 (IBNS) Shortly after Prime Minister Narendra Modi met top Chinese CEOs and appealed them to "work together" with India, Indian and Chinese companies signed 21 agreements worth about 22 billion dollars in Shanghai on Saturday.

"You are the 'factory of the world'. Whereas, we are the 'Back office of the world'... Let us work together in mutual interest and for progress and prosperity of our great countries," the PM said in his speech. .

The PM began his engagements in Shanghai, the last stop in his three-city, three-day visit to China, by meeting 22 top Chinese CEOs.

"I have come to say to you Make in India," he told them.

India and China "can together give something to the world," the PM said to the CEOs.

Among them was Jack Ma of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, who said to the PM, "We are excited about India. We are excited about Make in India and Digital India."

Lin Bin, President of phone maker Xiaomi, said, "We have some big plans for India, we fully support Make in India."

The PM flew to Shanghai on Friday evening from Beijing, where he held talks with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.
