“The ties between our people are old,” Modi said while addressing a joint press conference at No 10 Downing Street. “Our goals are similar, our partnership is vibrant and our ties are always expanding.”
Welcoming the Indian Prime Minister to No 10, Cameron said UK and India should work to make the partnership even stronger.
“Britain is already the largest investor in India among the G20 countries, with India investing more in the UK than it does in the rest of the EU combined,” said Cameron. “That’s making a difference to people’s lives, creating jobs, generating growth and making our economies more secure. But there is scope to go so much further.”
Cameron said Modi’s visit will witness British companies announcing new deals in India that will have them training more Indian workers, expanding businesses and ensuring new markets for British design and innovation.
