| @indiablooms | 10 Sep 2023, 02:17 am

New Delhi: The UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Saturday held a 'productive conversation' about negotiations on a UK-India Free Trade Agreement (FTA).

During the bilateral talk, Sunak reiterated the UK’s ambition to deliver a landmark trade deal which benefits businesses and workers in both countries and grows trade in both goods and services.

"They agreed that ministers and negotiating teams would continue to work at pace towards an FTA," an official release from the British High Commission said.

The leaders reflected on the close and growing ties between the UK and India, exemplified in the ‘living bridge’ between the people.

They agreed it was important to build on the past and focus on the future, cementing a modern partnership in cutting-edge defence technology, trade and innovation. They also discussed a number of consular issues.

Prime Minister Sunak and Prime Minister Modi welcomed the opportunity to meet again in person and Sunak congratulated PM Modi again on delivering a successful G20 Summit.
