According to figures provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the trade of India with the Nordic countries amounted to about 5, 300 million dollars in 2016-2017, with a cumulative foreign direct investment in the Southeast Asian country of 2, 500 million dollars. Our partnership is based on democratic values and commitment to an open, inclusive and rule-based global order. "Sweden is a valuable partner in our development initiatives", Modi had said in a departure statement last night. "Nordic competencies fit well with our vision for India's transformation", Modi said.

PM Modi's UK visit will have a particular focus on the India-UK technological partnership and the central feature of this will be his second meeting with Theresa May on Wednesday at the Francis Crick Institute in London, where a new India-UK Technical Alliance is expected to be among a series of announcements.
