London, Nov. 12 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said the UK remains a preferred destination for Indian students and added he is pleased that an Indian company is taking a thousand British students to India to skill them in Information Technology.
“We are working together in the most advanced areas of science and technology. We are finding solutions to the enduring human problems of food and health security, and seeking answers to emerging challenges like climate change. Our security agencies work together so that our children return home safe and our increasingly networked lives are not prey to the threats on cyber space,” he added.
Prime Minister Modi said our Armed Forces exercise with each other so that they can stand more strongly for the values we represent.
“This year alone, we have had three exercises together,” Prime Minister Modi said.
“And, in the international arena, your support has made it more possible for India to take her rightful place in global institutions and regimes. And, it has helped us both advance our common interests,” he added while addressing the British Parliament.
Prime Minister Modi said Britain’s resurgence is impressive.
“Its influence on the future of the global economy remains strong,” he added.
Prime Minister Modi further said the United Kingdom is the third largest investor in India behind Singapore and Mauritius.
“India is the third largest source of Foreign Direct Investment projects in the United Kingdom. Indians invest more in Britain than in the rest of European Union combined. It is not because they want to save on interpretation costs, but because they find an environment that is welcoming and familiar,” said Prime Minister Modi.
“It takes an Indian icon, Tata, to run a British icon and become your nation’s largest private sector employer,” he added. (ANI)
