Cameron spoke of cooperation with India on all fronts, including business, health, infrastructure and education. "On all the aspects of future development in India, the infrastructure that you are going to build or some of the exciting proposals we are looking at together, like the corridor between Mumbai and Bangalore, we want to explore that with you," he said.
"The Britain-India relationship is not just another relationship, it is quite a special relationship. There are several things our countries share. You are the world's largest democracy and we are one of the oldest. We also jointly face the scourge of terrorism that we have to fight and we will stand together and fight it together and there is no better place to say that than in Mumbai," he said, adding that the relationship is "all about the future rather than the past".
Cameron's second visit is a graphic expression of the desire to forge partnership with India, said Ratan Tata, chairman emeritus of Tata Sons. Both countries could partner to address Indian markets and third country markets, he added.
"The level and availability of technology in the UK is enormous and there is a great potential for Indian and UK companies to commercialise those technologies that will benefit us both," he said. Tata said the group had no idea there would be a financial meltdown in Britain after they made ambitious investments.
