Madrid: Aiming another boost to the Indian investment industry, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold a round-table conference with a select group of Spanish CEOs.

The PM will discuss the opportunities with these potential investors who are keen to invest and expand their presence in India.

The Indian Prime Minister, who is on a two-day visit to Spain will also hold bilateral talks with his Spanish counterpart Mariano Rajoy. The two Prime Ministers last met on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Turkey's Antalya in November 2015.

PM Modi has also called on President Frank-Walter Steinmeier at the Bellevue Castle in the German capital in the second leg of his six-day four-nation tour of Europe before departing from Spain.

It is worth mentioning that this is the first Indian prime ministerial visit to Spain in nearly 30 years after the visit of then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in 1988.

Earlier on Tuesday, Modi and German Chancellor Angela Merkel headed the biannual India-Germany Inter-Governmental Consultations following which 12 agreements across various sectors were signed by the two sides. The two leaders also addressed the India-Germany Business Summit in Berlin.

Following Wednesday's engagements in Spain, Modi will travel to Russia where he will hold the 18th annual bilateral summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday and attend for the first time the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), a business event, the next day.

On Saturday, the PM will hold his first meeting with newly-elected French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris before returning to India.
