Visit of the Minister of State -IT & Communications and Shipping

Mr. Deora travelled to Iceland where he met with several eminent Icelandic politicians and Government officials to discuss how to further deepen Indo-Icelandic relations. The officials he met included: His Excellency Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, Iceland’s 5-term President; Hanna Birna Kristjánsdóttir, the Minister of the Interior; and Ragnheiður Elín Árn, Iceland's Minister of Industry & Commerce.

Subsequently, Mr. Deora toured Iceland's Maritime Surveillance and Search and Rescue Centre.This visit was especially important as India is now an Observer on the Arctic Council, a body that coordinates environmental protection and sustainable development amongst Arctic nations.
