As a special gesture, Denmark’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen received Prime Minister Modi at the airport. Mr Modi has a packed agenda today. He will hold bilateral meeting with the Denmark Prime Minister. Both leaders will review the progress of the Green Strategic Partnership which was the first of its kind arrangement between India and Denmark. Later on, he will attend an India-Denmark Business Forum and also address members of the Indian diaspora. He will call on Queen Margrethe II. The visit will provide both sides an opportunity to shape new elements of partnership in the field of skill development, shipping, agri technology and mobility.
Tomorrow, the Prime Minister will participate in the 2nd India-Nordic Summit being hosted by Denmark. The Summit will focus on subjects like post-pandemic economic recovery, climate change, innovation and technology, renewable energy, the evolving global security scenario and India-Nordic cooperation in the Arctic region. Nordic countries are important partners for India in sustainability, renewable energy, digitisation and innovation. The visit will help in expanding India’s multifaceted cooperation with the Nordic region.
During the last leg of the tour, the Prime Minister will briefly stop over in Paris and meet French President Emmanuel Macron. The visit to France will provide an opportunity to carry forward the high level engagement between the two countries post the French Presidential elections.
