UK-India partnership to boost economy

Last week, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Prime Minister of India Narenda Modi met to discuss plans for further cooperation between the UK and India. “During this visit, British and Indian companies are announcing new collaborations, together worth more than £9 billion,” said Cameron.

India’s economy – the fastest growing large economy in the world – is set to grow 7.3 per cent in 2015 and bilateral trade was worth almost £20 billion in 2014.
