Denmark is eager to move ahead on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent proposal of setting up energy parks in India for Danish companies, which would also include facilities for research and development and skilling centres for job creation, according to Freddy Svane, Denmark’s Ambassador to India.
“We are discussing the concept right now as PM Modi’s proposal has just been made. We are keen to work on it and have started preparations on the Danish side. We will soon talk to the relevant Ministries in Delhi as well as States where we think there is a possibility of setting such parks. It can be in Tamil Nadu or Gujarat…we will have to see,” Svane told BusinessLine.
Modi and his Danish counterpart Mette Frederiksen, in their virtual bilateral summit on Tuesday, agreed to elevate India-Denmark relations to a ‘Green Strategic Partnership’ which also calls for increased focus on renewable energy,
