Amsterdam: Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in the Netherlands on Tuesday on the final leg of his three-nation tour after concluding his visit to the United States.
During the visit, Prime Minister Modi will be meeting Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and will also call on King Willem-Alexander.
“I look forward to meeting Prime Minister Rutte and reviewing our bilateral relations. I would be exchanging views with PM Rutte on important global issues, including counter-terrorism and climate change,” PM Modi had said on his Facebook page before leaving for his three-nation trip last Saturday.
Prime Minister Modi will also be meeting CEOs of major Dutch companies. He will also be meeting Indian Diaspora in The Netherlands.
“The Netherlands is our 6th largest trading partner in the EU and 5th largest investment partner globally. The Dutch expertise in areas such as water and waste management, agriculture and food processing, renewable energy and ports and shipping, matches with our development needs. Indo-Dutch economic engagement is a win-win proposition. I will discuss with PM Rutte as to how the two sides should work to further harness the synergies,” PM Modi had said in a Facebook post.
Earlier in the U.S., Prime Minister Modi held one-to-one and delegation-level talks with President Donald Trump at the White House. During the delegation-level meeting, the two leaders touched upon various topics ranging from purchase of military equipment to the bilateral relations between the two nations.
