Indian Ambassador Amrit Lugun met with Piraeus Mayor Ioannis Moralis and discussed commercial and trade activities, including cooperation between Mumbai and Piraeus.

This was the first initial meeting between the Indian Ambassador and Mayor Moralis.

The transportation and shipping sectors are of particular interest, but also other commercial and trade activities.

Mumbai is not only India's largest city in terms of population, but is also the country's commercial and economic heart.
