British Justice Minister Shailesh Vara commended the positive discussions on liberalisation of the Indian legal services sector at the Economic and Financial Dialogue, welcoming Indian Finance Minister Jaitley’s support for the process.
“I am delighted with the progress made in seeking to liberalise the Indian legal sector and I commend Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s commitment,” said Mr Vara. “This is a cause that I have been championing personally for many years, ever since I saw the value liberalisation would bring when working as a solicitor.
“The UK’s experience of an open legal services sector has been a hugely positive one, giving business the access it needs to international legal advice and helping make London the global legal hub it has become. I am confident that India’s decision to move down this path will benefit everyone, and be a real catalyst for bilateral trade and investment.
“My department stands ready to help the Indian Government progress this important reform in any way that would be helpful.”
