Indian PM Narendra Modi coming to Copenhagen

“I look forward to welcoming PM Modi. We have a good dialogue and co-operation – not least via our Green Strategic Partnership,” said PM Mette Frederiksen. 

“Denmark can help accelerate India’s green transition – a green transition that will benefit the climate and contribute to the reducing dependency on imported fossil fuels.”

Frederiksen went on to underline that the Danish-Indian partnership has immense potential for Danish companies to generate growth in Denmark and India.

The following day, Modi will participate in an Indian-Nordic meeting, where the leaders of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland will also be present.

Relations between the two nations have blossomed considerably as of late, with Modi hosting Frederiksen in New Delhi as recently as October 2021 as part of the much-lauded Green Strategic Partnership agreement.
