The Ministers discussed the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and how it is posing a significant threat to a globally connected world and agreed to jointly fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The Ministers also noted the challenges of a deep global economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and agreed to work towards creating jobs and possibilities within the green sustainable agenda.

 

During the meeting, the two Ministers agreed to work towards establishing a “Green Strategic Partnership” between India and Denmark building on existing green and sustainable collaborations under the Joint Commission. The partnership will focus on areas such as climate change, energy, circular economy, water, sustainable food and agriculture.

 

Last time the two met was in January for the Raisina Dialogue in New Delhi. We are hoping to see Honourable Minister Dr. S. Jaishanker soon in Denmark for a continuous fruitful dialogue and cooperation.
