UK Minister for Investment Lord Johnson has today, Wednesday 26 April, arrived in Bengaluru, India’s tech capital to strengthen the UK-India investment partnership across technology, life sciences and more.
During his visit, Lord Johnson will visit Bengaluru and Pune to meet investors and leading Indian businesses, including Infosys and Zensar, to drum up investor interest in the UK.
India remains a priority market for the UK and the Minister’s visit will help build momentum for the ongoing trade agreement negotiations between the two countries, which saw Round 9 of negotiations kicked off this week.
Lord Johnson will also use his visit to promote the Global Investment Summit 2023, which will bring together over 200 CEOs of multinational companies and investment corporations this Autumn. The inaugural Summit in 2021 secured nearly £10 billion of new foreign investment on the day, with this year’s event showcasing emerging UK
success stories in life sciences, deep tech, nuclear fusion and small modular reactors (SMRs), and manufacturing.
Minister for Investment Lord Johnson said:
“It is fantastic to be in India again visiting the vibrant cities of Pune and Bengaluru to find out how our strong cultural and economic ties mean investors and business leaders continue to choose the UK.
“From life sciences to AI, now is the time to invest in the UK as we are determined to be the undisputed number one investment destination in Europe.”
