The international travel guide Lonely Planet has picked Copenhagen as the top city on its 'Top Cities to Visit in 2019' list. Naturally, I would encourage every reader of India Empire to follow Lonely Planet's advice because Copenhagen does stand out with its unique design, bike culture, Tivoli Gardens, 15 Michelin-starred restaurants and a flourishing street food scene. More and more Indians are already traveling to Denmark by way of the direct Air India route, which opened in September 2017, and this year the number of Indian travellers visiting Copenhagen has increased by 20%. Similarly, a growing number of Danes journey east to explore the marvels of India. This is a significant development because it entails regular people-to-people contact and cultural exchange between Indians and Danes, which is crucial to strengthening the friendship between India and Denmark.

Agriculture is a cornerstone of both India's and Denmark's economy, and has long been an important area of cooperation between our two nations. Indo-Danish collaboration within agriculture dates back to India's milk revolution, where Denmark played a key role in the development of India's dairy industry. Our agricultural relations continues to grow closer, as exemplified by India's participation in the annual World Food Summit in Copenhagen and our Joint Working Groups on agriculture, food processing and food safety. Danish competences along the food value-chain remain uniquely matched to serve India's agricultural goals. Denmark is committed to leveraging its world-class expertise, to help facilitate Prime Minister Modi's vison of reducing food waste and doubling farmers' income by 2022.
