Buddhism, Business, Bollywood. Culture, Commerce and Creativity. In many ways, India and South Korea are a perfect couple, in step with each other, and looking to complement each other and help the other to fructify its true potential. As Prime Minister Narendra Modi travels to Seoul in May, the last leg of his three-nation tour, the focus will be on synergies between East Asia’s economic dynamo and India, Asia’s third largest economy. The visit will underscore the stress on the Modi government’s Act East policy and is expected to pitch India-South Korea relations onto a higher trajectory.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s trip to South Korea in December last year has already firmed up an ambitious agenda for the prime ministerial visit. When PM Modi sits down for talks with South Korean President Park in Seoul, there will be an array of issues on the table. Making the nuclear deal work, trade and investment, manufacturing tie-ups, and collaboration in in outer space and frontier areas of technology will be some of key issues that will dominate the leader’s talks.
