Prime Minister Modi talks with his Denmark Prime Minister today.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi held bilateral talks on Saturday with Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, who is on her first visit to the country. The talks, held at Hyderabad House here, focused on strengthening the international rules-based system and prioritizing growth and trade in a clean and environmentally friendly way.
PM Frederiksen arrived in New Delhi early this morning and is scheduled to stay here for another three days. She was met at the airport by Prime Minister Modi.
In a press conference held after the talks, Frederiksen stressed that the cooperation between the two nations is a “great example of how green growth and the green transition can go hand in hand.” “We are two democratic nations that believe in an international system based on rules,” he added.
At the meeting, the two prime ministers reviewed progress in the implementation of the ‘Green Strategic Partnership’. “During our virtual summit, we decided to establish a Green Strategic Partnership between our two countries. Today, we review and reiterate our commitment to this, ”Modi said.
The green partnership, finalized at a virtual summit last year, aims to create a framework for a significant expansion of cooperation in the areas of renewable energy, environment, economy, science and technology, and climate change.
Other areas of renewable energy along with trade and investment were also on the agenda.
Currently, India and Denmark have strong trade and investment ties. More than 200 Danish companies are present in India and more than 60 Indian companies have a presence in Denmark.
Frederiksen also praised the Indian prime minister’s leadership for setting “very ambitious targets for clean energy.” “You are an inspiration to the rest of the world as you have set some very ambitious goals when it comes to drinking water for more than 1 million homes and renewable energy,” he said.
Earlier that day, Modi welcomed Frederiksen to India in a ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. The Danish Prime Minister also visited Rajghat and paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi.
