For a three-day visit, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg will arrive here on Monday. On a host of issues, she will hold talks with her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.
During her visit, Solberg will deliver the inaugural address at the Raisina Dialogue and address India-Norway Business Summit.
Besides holding talks with Prime Minister Modi, she will also call on President Ram Nath Kovind and Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will also call on Solberg during her India visit.
In a statement the MEA had said that the upcoming visit of Prime Minister Solberg will provide an opportunity to the two sides to review the progress in bilateral cooperation and discuss ways to further expand the multi-faceted partnership in areas of common interest.
Ahead of the visit, Ambassador of Norway to India Nils Ragnar Kamsvag said this is the first visit to India by a Norwegian prime minister in a decade.
"The visit has the potential of boosting bilateral trade between the two countries and further strengthen the already good relationship," he said.
Norway is a leading ocean country, a key producer of maritime and sub sea technology and a major exporter of seafood, oil and gas, he said.
"We thus think that Norway has a lot to offer and we are hopeful that the bilateral talks during the visit will focus on sustainable use of the oceans that benefits both countries in the long run," the envoy said.
