  • PM Narendra Modi to begin his Sweden, UK visit today

After a meeting with industry captains, Modi will hold separate bilateral summits with the other Nordic countries.

Last year, Saab had assured it will ensure "full" technology transfer of its Gripen-E fighter jet to India if the company gets the contract to supply a fleet of the combat aircraft to Indian Air Force. "It reflects the importance the UK attaches to the visit and shows the mature level of India-UK ties", said an official involved with the preparations for the visit.

PM Modi's royal welcome will include a special event hosted by Prince Charles, during which the heir to the British throne will drive up in a Tata Motors' first-ever electric Jaguar to symbolise the India-UK technical collaboration. On April 17, Modi and his Swedish counterpart, Stefan Lofven, will hold a meeting during which they expect to discuss bilateral, regional and global issues.

Modi will also address a gathering of select Swedish business leaders and also meet the Indian community in Sweden. It will be only the second time that all five Nordic countries will have a summit with one country, the only other time was with the U.S. during Barack Obama's term. Modi even added that we have to strengthen our social values along with the law and order in the country. The Nordic countries have globally recognised strengths in clean technologies, environmental solutions, ports modernisation, cold-chains, skill development and innovation. "Nordic competencies fit well with our vision for India's transformation".

In a statement from Brussels Chairman Kashmir Council EU expressed hope the British Prime Minister Theresa May will put issue of human rights during her meeting with PM Modi.
