PM Modi Meets Swedish King & Queen, Holds Bilateral Discussions

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Monday, welcomed their Majesties King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden. The Swedish royal couple arrived yesterday morning and are on their 5-day visit to India, aiming to strengthen bilateral relations.

PM Modi tweeted with a few pictures on his official handle-

“Delighted to meet Their Majesties King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia.

We had extensive discussions on boosting cooperation between India and Sweden. Closer economic and cultural ties between our nations will greatly benefit our citizens.”

PM Modi and Sweden’s King chaired the India-Sweden High-Level Dialogue on Innovation Policy. This dialogue aimed at building a platform with major stakeholders in a triple helix format (government, private sector, and academia) for offering overall strategic direction for joint innovation policy.

PM Modi wrote in a tweet-

“Invigorating the India-Sweden friendship with closer cooperation in innovation and technology.

His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf and I chaired the India-Sweden High-Level Policy Dialogue on Innovation Policy.”

This high-level dialogue also aims at joint formulation and implementation of short- and long-term projects in strategic areas like circular economy, digital health, artificial intelligence, sustainable energy, and future mobility.

On this occasion, a joint Sweden-India project for the conversion of agriculture waste to bio-coal was announced. This project is initiated by the support of the office of Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government at National Agri-Food Biotechnology Institute, Mohali, in partnership with Bioendev, Sweden. It would help in converting paddy straw into high-energy bio-coal. The present plant holds the potential of converting 150 kg of agri-waste per hour into energy-efficient and clean bio-coal.

As per reports, a joint innovation partnership was signed between Indian and Sweden on 17 April last year during PM Modi’s visit to Sweden, furthering the bilateral collaboration and contributing to sustainable growth and new job opportunities. In the Joint Declaration on India-Sweden Innovation Partnership for a Sustainable Future, it was agreed that both countries would look to optimize the formal bilateral collaboration mechanisms, improve synergies between policy areas, and allow the exchange of experiences and best practices regarding innovation policies.

According to the officials,

“Several documents on furthering bilateral engagement are likely to be signed.”

The ties between both nations are on an upward trajectory in the past few years. Back in 2018, the bilateral trade volume was $3.37 billion.

The MEA stated-

“Bilateral relations between India and Sweden are friendly and based on principles of democracy and transparency, right to freedom, and rule of law. Regular interactions in political, business, scientific and academic spheres have provided dynamism to our bilateral ties.”
