Confederation of Indian industry (CII) and Confederation of British Industry (CBI), have jointly organised a conference on 8th July to deliberate the economic cooperation agenda, post UK elections and post one year of the new Indian government.

With Indian Prime Minister Modi’s first year of government just completed and a clear win for British Prime Minister David Cameron in the General Elections, time is ripe for the two economies to come together to affirm their commitment and strengthen their trade and investment ties.

The conference at the Taj St James's will deliberate some of the most important economic issues in the bilateral agenda and examine the future bilateral engagement strategies of both countries, especially focusing on opportunities for business enhancement and collaboration. It will feature remarks by High Commissioner of India to the UK Shri Ranjan Mathai, British Deputy High Commissioner Kumar Iyer, President of CII Sumit Mazumder, Director General of the CBI John Cridland and Director General of CII Chandrajit Banerjee.

A business panel will follow discussing emerging opportunities for India-UK collaboration. A high-level CII CEOs delegation visiting from India, will also be participating at the conference.
