India, Norway to boost cooperation on SDGs, ocean economy (Roundup)
Jan 10, 2019

India and Norway agreed to work in close cooperation on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the ocean economy following delegation-level talks headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Norwegian counterpart Erna Solberg here on Tuesday.
 
The Sustainable Development Goals match India's growth targets, Modi said in a joint address to the media with Solberg following the meeting.
 
And it is a matter of happiness for us that both countries are cooperating with the Norway-India Partnership Initiative on the issue of mother and child health, he said,
 
Referring to Solberg inaugurating Norway's new green Embassy here on Monday, he said that she has contributed significantly to global efforts to achieve the SDGs.
 
Modi also recalled his meeting with Solberg at the G20 Summit in 2017 during which the latter gifted him a football.
 
It was not a football game of goals, but a symbol of Sustainable Development Goals, he said.
 
Prime Minister Solberg has given a lot of encouragement to global efforts towards achieving Sustainable Development Goals.
