Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal today said that India and Sweden should work together to build a more resilient and strong partnership. Speaking at the CEO Forum of India-Sweden strategic business partnership, Mr Goyal said that the year 2020 has been a challenging year, but we should convert this crisis into an opportunity. 

Talking about Atma Nirbhar Bharat, he said that under it, the government is encouraging import of high-tech products, encouraging people to bring technologies, skills, better qualities of healthcare and education to India. 

Mr. Goyal said that the government will look for Sweden and European Union also opening its doors a little wider, removing some of the non-tariff barriers or standards, so that there is reciprocity in our trade with Sweden and  Europe and expansion of business on both sides.

The Minister said that India, with 1.35 billion people, provides one of the world’s largest business opportunities. Mr Goyal said that he is sure that Swedish companies would like to work in India and explore better opportunities.
