NEW DELHI: Norwegian Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt will visit India from April 25-27 to take part in Raisina Dialogue, in addition to holding political talks.

Raisina Dialogue is a high-level forum on geopolitics and geo-economics.

“Norway and India share common ambitions on climate and environment. To fulfill India’s goals in this area, large-scale development of renewable energy and hydrogen production is required, for which the country needs foreign investment and international technology. This opens up great opportunities for Norwegian business and industry and therefore a number of Norwegian companies will participate during the visit,” Foreign Minister Huitfeldt said.

Besides attending the geopolitical forum, Foreign Minister Huitfeldt will call on Indian officials for bilateral as well as political talks. She will also be accompanied by a business delegation from the Scandinavian state.

Norway aims to increase cooperation with India through multilateral cooperation, a strengthened international trade system, and international legal order.

The Norwegian envoy Hans Jacob Frydenlund recently attended the Bengal Global Business Summit in Kolkata, where he underscored the need for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and for sustainable development, and identified aquaculture as a possible area of cooperation between the state of West Bengal and Norway.
