There is growing awareness of Sweden in India, but the Nordic countries are still an unexplored area for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who arrived in Stockholm on Monday evening.

Dr. Henrik Chetan Aspengren at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs says Indian politicians are aware of Swedish companies and brands, but what is new is how many Indians are working in Sweden, with job visas rising sharply. And they could play a crucial role in the future relations between the two countries.
