India Global Forum’s (IGF) UK-India Week has become an unmissable event in the bilateral calendar and this year the theme is pegged around Reimagine@75 – a nod to the 75th anniversary celebrations of India’s Independence and 75 years of UK-India relations.
The event, organised by the UK-headquartered India Inc. Group, will leverage what Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi refers to as the Living Bridge of the UK-India relationship, with leading voices from across the British Indian diaspora joining experts from around the world to deliberate on some of the most pressing issues of the day in London.
India Inc. CEO and IGF Founder Manoj Ladwa said: “As a steadfast believer in the immense potential of UK-India relations, it really does feel like an exciting time for this winning partnership.
“Both great democracies are poised for that quantum leap we have all been working towards.”
