UK-India Week 2023 promises to be ‘biggest & best’

“As partners, the High Commission of India is delighted to welcome you to what promises to be one of the biggest and best editions of this signature event,” said Indian High Commissioner to the UK Vikram Doraiswami (pictured) on the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) partnership with India Global Forum’s (IGF) fifth annual UK-India Week later this month.

The MEA has joined hands with IGF for the second consecutive year for UK-India Week – a five-day event between June 26-30 that brings together business leaders, policymakers, and thought leaders to analyse and explore opportunities for further collaboration and growth between the two countries.

IGF Founder Professor Manoj Ladwa said: “I am delighted that India’s Ministry of External Affairs are partnering with us again.

“It reaffirms the importance of the UK-India bilateral relationship, and the role that India Global Forum plays in facilitating definitive exchanges and shaping the discourse on India’s globalisation.”

The announcement comes as the UK and India conduct the 10th round of negotiations towards a free trade agreement (FTA) in New Delhi this week.

Britain’s Acting High Commissioner to India Christina Scott said: "This weekend in Delhi, we are having the 10th round of negotiations. What is clear is that there is a joint commitment from both governments to double the amount of trade between our two counties by 2030.

“I really hope that the negotiating teams are cracking on with that this week so that we can agree on a modern, forward-looking and ambitious FTA that will benefit both the countries."

It follows prime ministerial level discussions between Narendra Modi and Rishi Sunak on the sidelines of the G7 Summit in Hiroshima, Japan, last month.
