This seems to be a very critical London trip for Mr Arun Jaitley, specially considering the Post Brexit effect on India-Britain ties and Indian FDI inflow.
In his bid to attract the British investors from United Kingdom, Mr Arun Jaitley, Union Minister for Finance and Corporate Affairs, is set to make a five-day visit to London on February 24.
On February 25, the minister will deliver a talk at London School of Economics on ‘Transforming India: Vision for the Next Decade’.
On next day, he will attend a reception being organised by Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI), British Council and Indian High Commission at UK, the finance ministry said in a statement. On February 27, Mr Jaitley will perform Market Opening Ceremony at London Stock Exchange followed by a Roundtable Meeting with prospective issuers and leading investors and fintech leaders among others.
Later in the day, he will have business interaction with over 100 senior business leaders from the UK-India Business Council (UKIBC) and will call on The Rt Hon Boris Johnson, Foreign Secretary of UK. Before his returning on February 28, he will also meet with his UK counterpart and the Chancellor of Exchequer.
