From the National Cemetery, he is currently attending a reception by the Indian community. Narendra Modi said it was "wonderful being in Seoul" as he arrived to an enthusiastic welcome from the Indian community.

Indian community members in large number, waving small tri-colour flags, were at the ROK Airbase to welcome the Prime Minister, who arrived from Ulan Bator.

A slew of agreements are expected to be signed during the visit including one on Double Taxation Avoidance Convention, cooperation in shipping and logistics, audiovisual co-production, transport, highways and electric power development in new energy industries.

Modi, later, will be accorded an official welcome after which he will hold talks with President Park Geun-hye.

Also, Modi, who is keen to woo Korean investments in India, will address India-Republic of Korea CEOs Forum, which would also be attended by the Korean President. The Prime Minister will follow this up with meetings with some of the heads of Korean companies that are willing to invest in India or have already invested in India.

He will also visit the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard in the backdrop of shipbuilding emerging as an important area of cooperation between the two countries.
