Without directly referring to Trump or the U.S., Modi said the "negative impact of this kind of mindset can not be considered less risky than climate change or terrorism".

Modi arrived in Davos on Monday for a one-day trip.

Just days after the ASEAN Summit ends in the Capital, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to embark on a three-nation West Asian tour of the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Palestine in the second week of February.

Modi also highlighted reforms and policies his administration had undertaken to make India more open. The forum aims to set an agenda to address political, economic and social challenges of recent times.

Earlier on Monday, Modi held a bilateral meeting with Swiss President Alain Berset who greeted the prime minister with a warm handshake in this town in the Swiss Alps before leading the Indian leader to the meeting. Besides, he will also interact with the members of global business community of the WEF.Modi is the first Indian prime minister to attend Davos summit in 20 years.

Without directly mentioning Trump or the USA, he said "the solution to this worrisome situation against globalization is not isolation".

Climate change and terrorism are grave concerns before the world, Modi said, while asserting that terrorism is unsafe but what is equally risky is the "artificial distinction" made between "good terrorist" and "bad terrorist". "We reviewed the scope of our bilateral cooperation and discussed ways to deepen it even further", Modi tweeted.

Stephen Schwarzman, chairman and CEO of Blackstone, told an audience at the World Economic Forum that the markets have responded to a positive global economic growth story. The changes, he said, will "pay back to India in a big way".

On India's efforts to generate more renewable power, Modi said: "To save the environment and to counter climate change, a huge campaign, a very big goal my government has placed in front of the country".
