Building on Britain's trade agreement with India

Today the Prime Minister has announced £1 billion of new UK-India trade, creating thousands of jobs that will boost our economy and help families and communities build back from coronavirus.

  • Like every aspect of the UK-India relationship, the economic links between our countries make our people safer and stronger.
  • That is why the Prime Minister has today committed to deepening the partnership between the UK and India at a summit with India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, including £1 billion of new UK-India trade and investment which will create 6,500 new jobs across the UK, and setting an ambitious target of doubling UK-India trade by 2030, putting us on the path to negotiating a comprehensive Free Trade Agreement.
  • This will help take the relationship between our two countries to new highs, delivering new jobs, opportunities and prosperity.
