Denmark PM Mette Frederiksen at Rashtrapati Bhavan : considers India a close partner.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday received his Danish counterpart Mette Frederiksen at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi ahead of a bilateral summit between the two leaders.

PM Mette Frederiksen, who is on a three-day visit to India, began her day with a ceremonial reception at Rashtrapati Bhavan. This was followed by wreath laying at Mahatma Gandhi’s samadhi at Rajghat.

“We consider India as a close partner. I see this visit as a milestone for Denmark-India bilateral relations,” Denmark Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

“Last year I and PM Modi signed and agree on a green strategic partnership. We see an ambitious Indian govt to take great responsibility when it comes to green transition in India and rest of the world,” she added.

During her visit, Frederiksen will call on President Ram Nath Kovind and hold bilateral talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. She will also interact with think tanks, students and members of civil society.

India termed Mette Frederiksen’s visit very important as she is the first head of state visiting India since Covid-19 restrictions are in place since last March. External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar had visited Denmark earlier this year.

India and Denmark have strong trade and investment ties. More than 200 Danish companies are present in India and over 60 Indian companies have a presence in Denmark.

There exists strong collaboration in the fields of renewable energy, clean technologies, water and waste management, agriculture and animal husbandry, science and technology, etc.
