Encouraging the UK to adopt a fresh perspective on India, Deputy High Commissioner Sujit Ghosh emphasized the need to discard "old lenses" and recognize India for what it truly represents. Ghosh conveyed this message during his address at the annual UK-India Parliamentary Lunch organized by the India Global Forum (IGF) in London.
The event, as described by the IGF, is a gathering that brings together prominent figures from politics, business, finance, and culture for an informative sit-down lunch, celebrating the growing ties between the two democracies.
Ghosh elaborated on the strengthening UK-India relations, highlighting India's dynamic digital economy and the multitude of opportunities it presents. In a post on the social media platform X, the IGF summarized Ghosh's remarks, quoting him as saying, “India is not just creating opportunities for its people but also for the rest of the globe. The UK is uniquely positioned to benefit from India’s rise." He urged the UK to embrace a contemporary understanding of India's evolving landscape.
James Cleverly, the UK Home Secretary, echoed the significance of the "living bridge" between the UK and India, emphasizing the importance of people-to-people links and collaboration. The IGF founder, Manoj Ladwa, highlighted the crucial role of democracies working together, considering current geopolitical, trade, and investment scenarios.
