The Danish government announced plans to expand its official cooperation with India and Iran through sustainable urban development and patents regarding products.
To this end, the Foreign Ministry of Denmark intends to deploy advisers to the two nations, cphpost.dk reported.
“The official cooperation and deployment of advisers has proven to be a very successful diplomatic tool,” said Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen.
“I’m very pleased we can now expand out cooperation with India and Iran. They are two nations enjoying riveting economic development, and we can help them overcome challenges.”
In the wake of international sanctions against Iran being lifted recently, Danish exports, political dialogue and university cooperation have been on the rise.
In collaboration with the Business Ministry, the Danish Patent and Trademark Office, and the Iranian authorities, a Danish adviser will focus on patents and trademarks, he said.
Two growth advisers will be deployed to India – one focusing on sustainable urban development in cooperation with Aarhus Municipality and local Indian authorities, while the other will work within energy in tandem with the Energy and Climate Ministry.
Aarhus will enter into a cooperation concerning urban development and city planning with the cities of Udaipur in India and Tshwane in South Africa, while Copenhagen will step up its association with Beijing.
