Copenhagen [Denmark]May 4 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other heads of government attended the Indo-Nordic summit at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen, Denmark on Wednesday.
The prime ministers of Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Sweden and Norway attended the second India-Nordic summit. This meeting came shortly after Prime Minister Modi held bilateral meetings with the Nordic leaders.
“The second India-Nordic summit begins. A boost for our multifaceted co-operation with the Nordic region in areas such as emerging technologies, investment, clean energy, Arctic research and more,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Arindam Bagchi said in a tweet.
This summit is a follow-up to the first summit that took place in Stockholm, Sweden in 2018. The Stockholm Summit was the first time India engaged with the Nordic countries as a group on a single platform.
Earlier, PM Modi had said that the summit will focus on topics such as post-pandemic economic recovery, climate change, innovation and technology.
It will also focus on renewable energy, the evolving global security scenario and India-Nordic co-operation in the Arctic region.
Following the summit, the Prime Minister is scheduled to make a brief stopover in Paris for a meeting with Emmanuel Macron, France’s newly elected president. (ANI)
