Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Denmark on Tuesday as part of his Europe visit and used a FOMO to entice business leaders to invest in India. He explained that those who do not invest in India will surely lose out on a lucrative opportunity.
PM Modi interacted with business leaders as part of the India-Denmark Business Forum. He asked business leaders to invest in India or experience FOMO. He said that those who do not invest in India even after seeing the reforms, they will definitely miss out on investment opportunities.
“These days the word FOMO or ‘fear of missing out’ is gaining momentum on social media. Looking at India’s reforms and investment opportunities, I can say that those who do not invest in our country will definitely be miss out,” PM Modi said.
Upon arrival, PM Modi was welcomed by Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen at the Copenhagen airport. PM Modi first visited Marienborg, the official residence of the Prime Minister of Denmark, where the Pattachitra painting was carefully showcased. PM Modi had gifted the painting to Frederiksen during his last visit to India.
Following the casual interaction, PM Frederiksen said that Denmark wanted India to use its influence with Russian leader Vladimir Putin to end the war in Ukraine. He said that Modi could urge the two countries to cease fire and initiate dialogue.
After the bilateral talks, PM Modi said that India-EU is hopeful for a speedy conclusion of the talks on the Free Trade Agreement. The statement came as India and the European Union are set to hold preliminary rounds of talks in June on a free trade agreement aimed at terminating an FTA in late 2023 or early 2024.
Later in the evening, PM Modi interacted with the Indian diaspora and said that due to India’s huge diversity, people may have different food options and languages, but Indian culture is the same. He called for ‘LIFE’ and said that the focus should be on Life-Lifestyle for Environment to tackle climate change. He said that people’s consumption should be determined by their needs and not by the size of their wealth.
