IGF’s UK-India Week catalyst for forging new trade ties: Rishi Sunak

“India Global Forum’s annual UK-India Week is a highly anticipated fixture in the bilateral calendar of our two great nations. It is a catalyst for forging new trade ties, lasting collaborations, and a better future for our peoples. I'm confident this partnership will be a defining one for our times,” said UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in a statement this week ahead of India Global Forum’s (IGF) flagship event.

Professor Manoj Ladwa, Founder & Chairman of IGF, said: “Given the geopolitical upheaval and economic turbulence around the world, I believe that it is more important now than ever before that the UK and India forge closer and deeper ties.

“I am therefore grateful to Prime Minister Sunak for recognising the role that IGF is playing in bringing our two great democracies closer to unlocking the true potential of the partnership.”

Sunak is familiar voice associated with UK-India Week and during the 2022 edition, then as Chancellor of the Exchequer, the British Indian leader emphasised the importance of forging a partnership of equals.

He said at the time: “India isn’t looking to the past. And nor can we. We need to move forward. Because the UK does not have a natural right to sit at the table with one of the world’s largest, fastest growing, and most dynamic economies. We must earn it.”

IGF’s UK-India Week is a six-day series of events that brings together business leaders, policymakers, and thought leaders from India, UK and across the world to discuss and explore opportunities for further collaboration and growth. The event features a series of discussions, keynote speeches, and exclusive networking opportunities from the 24 to 30 June 2023 in London and Windsor.

Over 2,000 in-person participants will attend IGF UK-India Week 2023 over 12 marque events in iconic locations in London and Windsor, including:

·       June 24: IGF Young Leaders Forum
