"My counterpart is Anand Sharma and we will be probably discussing WTO and world trade. If I get a chance to meet the Minister of Finance, we will probably talk about investment climate in India - what is working and what it not” Stubb told PTI.


Talking about his visit to India, he said it was a broad visit. "We are approximately 20 Finnish companies from clean tech, design, healthcare and traditional metal and mining sector," he said.


He maintained that clean tech is basically for environment and for him it is use of clean technology and clean use of natural resources and there are 26 Finish companies working in the clean technology sector in India.


Stubb is accompanied by representatives from energy and environmental technology, mining, metals and construction industry, information technology, health and well-being services and financing.


The purpose of the visit is to strengthen the image of Finland as a country with a high level of competence and an attractive target for investments, as well as to promote business opportunities of Finnish companies in India.


According to the agreement State-run explorer Oil and Natural Gas Company (ONGC) and Finnish clean technology firm Chempolis will set up a pilot project to produce ethanol, bio-chemicals and bio-coal from biomass residual matters.
