"I had an excellent meeting" with Modi, Sharif told CNN-IBN television. "We are positive. (I look) forward to a positive outcome."
According to a report, Nawaz Sharif's agenda is to enhance "trade and economic" ties between India and Pakistan.
"I am regarded as a friend of businessmen and we are regarded as a business-friendly government. Modi too is perceived as a business-friendly person. He has a model of development. We can easily work with each other", Sharif was quoted as saying.
The report further said that Indian companies such as the Adani Group have proposed to produce electricity to be sold to Pakistan.
Sharif, who attended Modi's swearing in ceremony here Monday, said he wished the Modi government "all the best".
