Dame Carolyn Fairbairn DBE, CBI Director-General, and Mr. Chandrajit Bannerjee, Director-General of the Confederation of Indian Industry, said:
“The economic relationship between India and the United Kingdom is in fine fettle. Whether it’s the fact the UK has consistently been one of the top five investors into India since 2000 or that our bilateral trade is now worth over £20 billion, it’s clear the economic ties between our two countries are going from strength to strength.
“There’s no question that our two countries will be close and vital trading partners as the UK charts a new future outside the EU. Firms on both sides of the globe renew their commitment to working together with the governments in Westminster and New Delhi to consolidate, build on and strengthen the trading relationship that employs millions of our citizens, creates incredible new products and services and delivers prosperity to our nations and communities.”
