This apart, PM Modi and Mr Lofven will attend a round table of Swedish CEOs.

From Sweden, Modi will travel to the United Kingdom on Tuesday where he will also attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), besides holding bilateral talks with his British counterpart Theresa May.

PM Modi will first travel to Sweden on a two-day visit from April 16-17. India and Sweden share warm and friendly ties.

The huge crowd that had congregated at Chhattisgarh's Bijapur district for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's event was taken by surprise when Modi, who was slated to present a pair of slippers to a tribal woman, bent down and helped the bare-footed woman wear her gifted footwear.

Following his meeting with Theresa May, the prime minister will head to the Science Museum in London to visit the "5000 Years of Science and Innovation" exhibition and interact with Indian-origin and other scientists and innovators based in the UK.

The Nordic countries are leaders in green technologies and sustainable development, and the Ministry of External Affairs has said they could be ideal partners for the Modi government's flagship programmes like Swachh Bharat and Smart Cities. Our partnership is based on democratic values and commitment to an open, inclusive and rule-based global order. The groups had staged a noisy demonstration outside Downing Street during Modi's last visit to Britain in November 2015.

The two Prime Ministers will hold bilateral talks on Tuesday.

PM Modi is also scheduled to attend the first India-Nordic Summit on April 17, which is an effort to raise relations with the five countries of the region - Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Sweden and Norway. The Nordic countries have globally recognised strengths in clean technologies, environmental solutions, ports modernisation, cold-chains, skill development and innovation. Nordic competencies fit well with the vision for India's transformation. I had last visited the United Kingdom in November 2015. The forthcoming visit of Prime Minister Modi's visit to the UK will focus on enhancing India-UK tech partnership.

It was the Prime Minister's fourth visit to Chhattisgarh, where assembly elections are due later in the year.

He further said, "Under the theme of "Living Bridge", I will also have the opportunity to meet people from various walks of life who have enriched the multi-faceted India-UK relationship".

Prime Minister Modi will attend the CHOGM in London from April 19 to 20.
