(New Delhi) – UK Prime Minister, David Cameron and a large trade delegation have commenced a three-day visit to India for closer trade ties. Accompanied by an array of British business leaders, including officials from BAE Systems (LON: BA), Rolls-Royce (LON: RR), and London Underground, Cameron has also suggested that the British government will make it easier for Indian students and businessmen to obtain visas to visit the UK. “We want to make sure that we are attracting; the best and the brightest. And in terms of our visa operation in India, it is the biggest one we have anywhere in the world. Nine out of 10 of those who apply for a visa get one,” he said.
Cameron, making his second official trip to India as prime minister, also called for the formation of a 21st-century “partnership” between India and Britain. He has already targeted a doubling of UK-India trade by 2015. “India’s rise is going to be one of the great phenomena of this century and it is incredibly impressive to see,” Cameron told an audience in Mumbai.
Cameron is also slated to meet with Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh and President Pranab Mukherjee in New Delhi.
