Growing awareness of Sweden in India

3:33 min

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.
