Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf held extensive talks with President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to expand overall bilateral cooperation in diverse areas.

Welcoming King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia at Rashtrapati Bhawan last evening at a banquet in their honour, President Ram Nath Kovind said that India-Sweden bilateral trade and investment relations are gaining strength.

He said that India sees Sweden as a key partner in its Make in India, Start-up India, Clean India, Digital India and Smart City programmes. He invited Sweden to join the International Solar Alliance.

Later, the two sides inked three pacts providing for cooperation in polar science, innovation and research and in maritime spheres.
