Keith visits India to strengthen Indo-British relations

Posted on February 20th, 2012 in National

Keith visited India last week to promote UK-India relations. He was particularly keen to encourage Indian students to study in the UK and strengthen trade relations between the two countries.

Keith met with the family of Anuj Bidve, in Mumbai to hand over donations from the Anuj Bidve Memorial Fund. He also met with a number of Ministers in Delhi, including the Home Minister P. Chidambaram (pictured above), and discussed ways in which the people of India and the UK can work together. He focused particularly on the way in which India can connect with her British Diaspora.

While in Goa, he took the opportunity to see the diabetes charity he founded, Silver Star, which has a mobile testing unit based in Goa, in action. The charity tested 6000 people in Goa in the last year alone. He is to launch two further mobile diabetes testing units in Mumbai and Delhi later this year. The charity also operates in Leicester and London.
