Modi will visit Switzerland on 5-6 June, MEA said, adding with growing bilateral trade and foreign investment, India and Switzerland enjoy strong economic ties.

Asserting that bilateral relations between India and Mexico have witnessed renewed vigour and activity in the last two years, the MEA said the main objective of Modi's visit would be to carry forward the momentum in the bilateral relations and discuss cooperation in areas such as space, energy, agriculture and science and technology among others.
