An area comprising of a whopping 173 million people.

Trade and investments are a specially prioritized area.
It also focuses on spreading information on how Swedish innovations, technologies and services could benefit India. The Consulate works closely with for example Business Sweden to help liaise and increase business contacts between Swedish companies within certain strategic industries, such as Energy & Environmental Technology, Health Care & Life Science and ICT.
