In a tweet in Hindi she wrote, "Today I'm travelling to India. "Congratulations to India on the completion of 75 years of independence #AzadikaAmritMahotsav . Norway cooperates with India on topics such as oceans, clean energy, climate, environment. We look forward to further strengthen our relationship."

The Norwegian Embassy had said, Norway cooperates with India on the ocean, clean energy, climate and the environment, among other things.

Both countries have an increasing and extensive business collaboration. In addition, Norway and India are together in the UN Security Council.

"Norway and India share common ambitions on climate and environment. To fulfil India's goals in this area, largescale development of renewable energy and hydrogen production is required, for which the country needs foreign investment and international technology," said Huitfeldt after arriving in India.

"This opens up great opportunities for Norwegian business and industry and therefore a number of Norwegian companies will participate during the visit," Huitfeldt added.

Norway aims to increase cooperation with India to contribute to strengthened multilateral cooperation, a strengthened international trade system and legal order, the statement said.
