Sushma Swaraj invites diaspora living in Bulgaria to invest in the country

@MEAIndia
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has hailed India as a land of opportunity and invited the diaspora living in Bulgaria to invest in the country and participate in its transformative journey.
   
Addressing the Indian community in Bulgarian capital Sofia today, she lauded the diaspora for its commendable role in boosting bilateral ties. Mrs Swaraj reached the European country yesterday on the first leg of three-nation tour including Morocco and Spain. 


She is the first-ever Indian External Affairs Minister to visit the Balkan nation. Mrs Swaraj said, India has always viewed Bulgaria as a true friend and shares the belief that the time-tested bilateral partnership will be further strengthened to mutual benefit in the coming years. 


The External Affairs Minister said, there is a new vigour in NDA government's diaspora policy and outreach. She said, the welfare of Indian citizens living outside the country is a top priority of the Government and her personally. 

Earlier in the day, Mrs Swaraj paid a floral tribute at the Mahatma Gandhi Statue in South Park. The statue was sculpted by Ivan Rusev, a prominent Bulgarian sculptor, and was inaugurated last year in September by President Ram Nath Kovind.
