Secretary of State Mr Brokenshire said:

“I’m delighted to launch the India-UK Future Tech Fest, announced by our Prime Ministers in April this year.

The festival will be an unmissable showcase of how India-UK collaboration and innovation is rapidly delivering the Tech Partnership. More importantly, it will demonstrate joint thought leadership on the tech that is changing lives and creating prosperity for both countries.   

As the Midlands Engine region demonstrates, the UK has world-beating capabilities – from technology and finance to mobility and healthcare – that make us the natural partner for the India’s ambitions.”

In Delhi he met with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, toured a Vodafone customer care centre and attended a reception hosted by Birmingham airport.  In Pune he met with Bharat Forge – who have an active presence in the Midlands – and the Minister for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprise on the Midlands-Maharashtra Tech Partnership.
