The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has welcomed the Prime Minister’s announcement that he is determined to make it easier for Indian students and business people to study and work in the UK.

“The value generated by our world class education sector helps the UK compete globally, so it’s great to hear the case for genuine students being set out positively by the Prime Minister," Katja Hall, CBI Chief Policy Director, said.

“Two-way trade and investment flows already benefit businesses from India and the UK, so the introduction of a ‘same day’ visa service that we have called for, would help smooth the path for entrepreneurs to work and invest in the UK.

“India is a high-growth economy with a booming middle-class and major projects in the pipeline, like the Bangalore-Mumbai Economic Corridor, which represents a real opportunity for the best of UK business.”
