Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Tuesday, arrived in Madrid in Spain in the second leg of his six-day visit to four European nations. Prime Minister will pay an official visit to the country from 30 – 31 May 2017. Modi’s visit is the first visit by an Indian Prime Minister to Spain in almost three decades. “I will have the honour of calling on His Majesty King Felipe VI during this visit. I look forward to my meeting with President Mariano Rajoy on 31 May,” Modi had said earlier in a Facebook post. Issues related to enhancing bilateral engagement, especially in the economic sphere, and cooperation on international subjects of common concern, particularly in combating terrorism, will be discussed between PM Modi and President Rajoy.
“There is significant potential for deepening bilateral trade and investment ties. We seek active participation of Spanish industry in various Indian projects including infrastructure, smart cities, digital economy, renewable energy, defence and tourism,” PM Modi had said ahead of embarking on the four-nation tour.
