Swedish Prime Minister to receive Narendra Modi

On 16–17 April 2018, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Sweden at the invitation of Prime Minister Stefan Löfven. They will meet to discuss issues such as innovation, sustainable development and how Swedish–Indian relations can be further strengthened.

Global economic growth is primarily taking place in Asia, not least in India, which is currently the world’s fastest growing major economy. The Government is working to strengthen Sweden’s role as a key partner for India in the country’s rapid development, especially in innovation.

Swedish businesses have long had a considerable presence in India. We are also seeing how Indian businesses are making major investments in Sweden. Increasing trade and investments in both directions will strengthen jobs and growth in Sweden. Bilateral cooperation is taking place in a number of areas, including the environment, renewable energy, research and health.
