Monika Kapil Mohta was on 17 September 2016 appointed as the India's Ambassador to Sweden.
She is presently the Additional Secretary in the Ministry of External Affairs and looks after India's relations with a large part of the Asia-Pacific region.
Mohta is an 1985 batch Indian Foreign Services officer. Previously, she has served as the ambassador of India to Poland and Lithuania.
The two countries have a cordial relationship and growing economic cooperation. The development cooperation between Sweden and India began in 1953 and was initially mainly in the form of import support.
In the 1990s, India became the largest recipient of Swedish aid and the support included loan-financed projects in the energy sector and grant support in the areas of natural resources, health and education.
The 60 years of Swedish support has contributed to create conditions that enable poor people to improve their lives and have build relationships between Swedish and Indian people.
