Newsletter: India-Sweden Strategic Compass Vol. 1, No. 4, November-December 2022
January 16, 2023: The latest issue from the “India-Sweden Strategic Compass” is now available.
The Stockholm Center for South Asian and Indo-Pacific Affairs publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, the ‘India-Sweden Strategic Compass’. The newsletter focuses on current affairs, highlighting Sweden and India relations, India-Nordic relations, EU-India relations, domestic developments in India, and relevant international updates.
As the year draws to a close, bilateral relations between India and the European Union (EU), and especially India and Sweden, are intensifying. The main focus continues to be cooperation in the field of green energy and sustainability. The India visit of Swedish Foreign Trade Minister, Johan Forssell, marked an encouraging high point in the economic partnership between the two countries. Several strong signals were sent out, aimed at close cooperation in all areas of economy, industry, and science. This fruitful relationship is particularly important in view of Sweden’s upcoming EU presidency in 2023. Favorable diplomatic relations with Sweden will be the cornerstone for accelerated action on the proposed India-EU Free Trade Agreement.
