Apart from bilateral visits to the two countries, Prime Minister Modi will attend the India-Nordic Summit and Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Sweden and the United Kingdom respectively.

Cooperation issues in the areas of innovation, technology and education will head the agenda of the high official in this tour of Europe.

India and Sweden are looking for some big outcomes at Tuesday's summit when Prime Minister Narendra Modi travels to Stockholm for a bilateral meeting and the first Indo-Nordic conference with Iceland, Finland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

Besides the security pact, an action plan and Document on Partnership for Innovation will be issued after the Stockholm Summit between Modi and his Swedish counterpart, the persons cited earlier said, adding that Sweden is keen to boost its partnership with India to the strategic level. According to figures provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the trade of India with the Nordic countries amounted to about 5, 300 million dollars in 2016-2017, with a cumulative foreign direct investment in the Southeast Asian country of 2, 500 million dollars.
