"During our talks, President Moon and I will take forward our conversations from last year on how best to advance the India-ROK partnership. I will also meet business leaders, the Indian community as well as eminent persons from all walks of life," the prime minister said. 

Prime Minister Modi further said, "We regard the Republic of Korea as a valued friend, a nation with which we have a Special Strategic Partnership."

"ROK is an important partner for our ‘Make in India’ initiative as well as in our ‘Start Up India’ and ‘Clean India’ initiatives," Modi said, adding "our collaboration in the field of science and technology is encouraging, with our joint research ranging from basic to advanced sciences."
