@MEAIndia
Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Seoul this morning on a two-day visit to South Korea. Mr Modi will hold bilateral talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and receive the Seoul Peace Prize in recognition of his dedication to international cooperation, global growth and human development. 

Besides summit meeting with President Moon Jae-in, Prime Minister Modi will also have a number of engagements with the Korean leadership, businesses and Indian Community. 

"In a few hours from now, Prime Minister will address the India-Korea Business Symposium and will also launch India-Korea Startup Hub. It will be a great push and assurance for more Korean companies to invest in India and also a boost for bilateral trade. 

At present bilateral trade is around 21 billion dollars and is targeted to reach 50 billion dollars by 2030. Another important aspect is the strengthening of Cultural relations which speaks volumes of India's soft power. 

Prime Minister will meet the mayor of Kimhae city which is believed to have ancient ties with the city of Ayodhya. It acts as a catalyst for people to people relations. 

As part of the global celebrations of the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, Prime Minister will unveil a bust of Mahatma at the Seoul Campus of Yonsei University. He will also interact with the Indian community in South Korea. Bilateral talks with President Moon will take place tomorrow.
