Danish Prime Minister Mate Fredriksson, who visited India, has praised PM Modi openly. Praising the ambitious Jal Jeevan Mission, he has described Prime Minister Narendra Modi as an inspiration for the world. While issuing a joint statement with PM Modi, Frederickson said that you have set an ambitious target of providing clean drinking water and clean energy to more than one million homes. You are an inspiration to the rest of the world.
Frederickson, who was visiting India for the first time, thanked PM Modi for accepting the invitation to visit Denmark. He said that I am very proud that you have accepted my invitation to come to Denmark. During this, PM Modi said that India and Denmark are continuing their cooperation during the Corona Pandemic. The Prime Minister of Denmark, Mette Fredriksson, is on a visit to India from 9 to 11 October.
The ambitious goal for which Frederickson has described PM Modi as the inspiration for the world, he announced it on 15 August 2019 from the ramparts of the Red Fort. Then Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the Jal Jeevan Mission and said that by 2024, every household in the country would be provided with piped pure drinking water. Later in the budget of 2020-21, the Jal Jeevan Mission or Har Ghar Jal Yojana was announced. The government will spend Rs 3.5 lakh crore on this ambitious scheme. This will be a great gift to those areas where people have to struggle hard for drinking water. In some places, one has to travel several kilometers to get drinking water.
India and Denmark have strong trade and investment ties. There are more than 200 Danish companies present in India, while there are more than 60 Indian companies in Denmark. The two countries have strong cooperation in renewable energy, green technology, water and waste management, agriculture and animal husbandry, science and technology, digitalisation, smart cities, shipping sectors.
