Prime Minister Narendra Modi embarks on three-nation Europe visit
Prime Minister Narendra Modi embarks on a five-day visit to Sweden and the UK with an aim to boost bilateral cooperation in key areas, including trade and investment. On the first leg of his visit, the Prime Minister will visit Sweden where he will attend the first ever India-Nordic Summit at Stockholm. The Prime Minister will also hold bilateral discussions with his Swedish counterpart. Business and trade is high on agenda when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet the Prime Minister of Sweden and other Nordic leaders in Stockholm.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven are expected to discuss "innovation, sustainable development and how Swedish-Indian relations can be further strengthened" in Stockholm during two-day PM Modi`s visit.

Sweden has supported India`s key "Make-in-India" manufacturing summit with Löfven leading a delegation of Swedish industry leaders to the launch of Make India in Mumbai in 2016. India is also a market of growing significance for Sweden; more than 160 Swedish companies are now established in India, including powerhouses like Ikea and H&M, who are both expanding in the market.
