Trade between the United Kingdom and India is expected to grow, as British businesses are looking for alternatives to China. That’s according to the UK-India Business Council (UKIBC).

The council’s first Indian Group CEO Jayant Krishna said in an interview with the Press Trust of India that UK businesses are very keen to support India’s ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ (Self-reliant India) mission.

“UK and India have started looking at opportunities emanating from the business sentiments worldwide to explore manufacturing supply chain possibilities as alternatives to China,” he said. (RT)
