Relations between India and Denmark are friendly and warm. I have had constructive discussions today with Prime Minister Rasmussen on bilateral, regional and international issues. I also had an interesting interaction with the Speaker and some Deputies of the Danish Folketing. I look forward to meeting Her Majesty the Queen later today.

discussed ways to enhance trade and investment. We have identified several
potential areas for cooperation, including information technology,
biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and food processing and non-conventional
I invited Prime Minister Rasmussen to
visit India to continue our dialogue
