New Delhi,

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday had a telephonic conversation with his Swedish counterpart Stefan Lofven during which he conveyed his appreciation for Sweden’s support to the ‘Make-in-India’ programme.

Sweden had participated in a big way in the ‘Make-in- India Week’ held in Mumbai last year, with Lofven himself attending it along with a large delegation consisting of government officials, heads of agencies and industry leaders.

“Had a good discussion with H. E. Mr. Stefan Löfven @SwedishPM on the phone. I deeply appreciate Sweden’s support for @makeinindia,” Modi tweeted.

Modi and Lofven had jointly inaugurated Sweden’s pavilion at the ‘Make-in-India Week’ last year in which over 18 Swedish companies had participated.
