The Mayor reminded everyone he meets that London is still the world’s number-one location for investment, talent and ideas, and he will say that people from all over the world remain welcome to work, study or visit his city.

Sadiq is accompanied by his Deputy Mayor for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, and a packed itinerary in both countries will include discussions on business and investment, infrastructure and the environment as well as visas and opportunities to work together more closely.

The Mayor met with senior politicians and with representatives of the tech, education and sports sectors. In Mumbai, the Mayor met leading figures from the city’s phenomenally successful Bollywood film industry.

Between 2005 and 2016, the UK was the second largest destination for Indian investment and 44 per cent of the fastest growing Indian companies now have a base in London. And in 2017, the UK and India have been celebrating a bilateral year of cultural exchange. A major programme of cultural events and activities in India have been organised by the British Council, and a similar programme in the UK organised by the Government of India.

After his India visit, London Mayor will continue to Pakistan to boost trade ties with the Indian neighbour too.
