Mumbai, Feb 6 (UNI) UK Immigration Minister Minister of the West Midlands, Liam Byrne will be here tomorrow, as part of his four-day visit to India.
In his capacity as a Regional Minister of the West Midlands, he will be calling in on several high profile Indian businessmen to promote the trade and investment activities between India and the British Midlands region, a release issued here said.
The British Midlands has shown a keen interest in the Indian companies in the last few years. Recognising the increasing desires and abilities of the Indian businesses to expand globally, the British Midlands set up their representative office in the country over five years ago for the purpose of attracting Indian investment into the region.
Speaking on his visit to the city, Mr Byrne said, ''India is emerging as one of the top level contenders in the global scenario today making it a fantastic time to do business with India. Indian companies are riding on an economic tidal wave and are seeking to make their presence known internationally.'' ''I feel especially honoured that I have had an opportunity to visit this extraordinary country and hope that we will continue to work with the Indian companies who wish to expand their businesses to our region,'' he added.
