I remain incredibly proud of the strong relationship I helped forge between the United Kingdom and India while I was Prime Minister. I brought my first ever trade mission to India back in 2010 to help create a truly modern partnership, alive to the possibilities of the world’s oldest democracy and the world’s largest democracy. It is such a pleasure to return more than a decade on to examine with you a very different world we live in today. The challenges may be different, but the strong bonds that bind our countries together endure. There is no shortage of topics to be covered, so I look forward to joining you at this important gathering.”

The journey isn’t without challenges. But the goal is as sacred as it is ambitious, driven by strong leadership, collective will and commitment of the entire nation. The ultimate aim of this event is to generate ideas and thoughts through free-wheeling discussions to achieve a common objective of India becoming the ‘Vishwa Guru’.”
