Want to make access to UK easier for Indian students and companies: Rishi Sunak
News by NRI Herald, 26 August 2022
Rishi Sunak, a British prime ministerial candidate, has stated that he would like to broaden the UK-India connection and simplify the process for Indian students and businesses to visit the UK.
"We understand how essential the UK-India connection is. Sunak described bilateral connections as "a live bridge connecting our two countries."
"We all seem to be conscious of the opportunities for the UK to sell and do things in India. However, we have to think about that connection properly as there is so much that we could learn from India."
"I would really like to make it simple for our kids to fly to India and study, and I'd also like to simplify the process for our firms and Indian companies to work collaboratively since it's a two-way interaction, and that's the type of transformation I would really like to bring," he continued.
Acknowledging an assembling of British Indian Conservative Party members in the party who will vote in the election in conjunction with Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, the 42-year-old UK-born Indian-origin Tory MP for Richmond in Yorkshire pledged to lead the nation through "tough moments" of inflation as well as to make a stronger, safer Britain.
Tory party members will be able to vote in a ballot that will be open until 5 p.m. on September 2, 2022, with the announcement of the leadership battle scheduled for September 5, 2022.
