London: The newly elected British Prime Minister Theresa May’s business mission to India on November 6-8 led to deals worth $1.5 billion being inked, Downing Street said.
According to international news agency quoted Downing Street as saying on yesterday that May used the visit to deliver “on the ambitious vision for Britain after Brexit forging a new global role for the UK as a country with the self-confidence and the freedom to look beyond the continent of Europe”.
The British Prime Minister said: “Leaving the European Union presents us with a world of opportunities and I’m determined to seize them. That’s why I went to India to deliver on global Britain and I have to say that the response I’ve had in India has been excellent.
“We have an agreement with the Indian government to work with them on our trade relationship. What that means is more trade for British businesses, more jobs and investment in the UK and that’s good for the whole country.”
A spokeswoman for May said, during her visit a number of commercial deals were signed, creating and securing jobs at home and demonstrating market confidence in the strength of the British economy.
