There is a 23% increase in the number of tourists from India to Sweden. Improved people-to-people exchange, increased trade between the two nations, a concerted government interest from both sides, and direct flights have contributed to this growth. These results were shared by Visit Sweden and the Consul General of Sweden in Mumbai at a recently conducted seminar by Scandavian Tourism board in Mumbai. There is a 100 per cent increase in the number of visa applications from India for Sweden from 2014 to 2018.
Speaking on the occasion, Ulrika Sundberg, Consul General of Sweden to Mumbai, said, “The excellent relations between Sweden and India which have developed over the past few years with PM Löven and PM Modi’s respective visits, the joint declaration, joint action plan and the adoption of strategic partnership on innovation, are paving the way for increased bilateral visits and people to people contacts.”
