Following the eighth UK-India Economic and Financial Dialogue (EFD) in London, Chanellor George Osborne and Indian Finance Minister Arun Jaitley have reached a number of agreements concerning the future of trade and investment between the UK and India.
“The agreements we’ve made today are another important step in deepening economic ties between Britain and India,” said the Chancellor yesterday.
The Chancellor and the Finance Minister were able to cover a wide range of topics, including the prospect of an Indian National Infrastructure Partnership; rupee bond issuances in London by Indian corporates; and how to continue strengthening links between FinTech communities in India and Britain.
“Working together across infrastructure and financial services we will be able to solve key shared challenges which will help us create growth in both of our economies,” Osborne said.
