The Ambassador welcomes

H. E. Freddy Svane is the current Ambassador at the Royal Danish Embassy in New Delhi.


"India has always been close to my heart and the fond memories of this incredible nation bring me back. As I serve my second term as the Danish Ambassador to India, I look forward to deepen the Indo-Danish relations.

As said by PM Shri Narendra Modi, India has the scale, Denmark has the skills. I truly believe that both countries not only have many fantastic opportunities to offer, but can also learn a lot from each other. So let us join hands and become a green example to follow. Jai Hind."
