New Delhi, Jan.19 (ANI): Gordon Brown will arrive on his first visit as British Prime MInister to India on Sunday.
The focus of the trip will be on improving business ties and enhancing cooperation on climate change and counter-terrorism.
Brown arrives in Delhi from China, and the visit will be about introducing British business to one of Asia’s economic giants.
He last visited the Indian capital a year ago as the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Brown’s visit to India and China comes at a time when western economies are starting to see a slight slowdown.
So, while trade and investment will be at the top of the agenda at the summit in New Delhi, India will look at discussing immigration which could become an issue as Britain starts to tighten its borders. (ANI)
