Wales First Minister Carwyn Jones has held talks with representatives of the Indian Government on his current trade mission to India. Wales was promoted as a business friendly nation as described by First Minister during his speech at the Confederation of Indian Industry in the capital New Delhi.

Here are the statements by the first minister: “I was delighted to welcome a delegation of Indian businessmen to Wales last year and that the Welsh Government is able to support a trade mission here to India this week.

“There are a number of Indian companies already operating in Wales who make a valuable contribution to the Welsh economy and I am keen to see the number increase and I would welcome your views on attracting further investment in Wales.

“I would like to see stronger trade links between our countries and welcome the decision by the Indian High Commission in the UK and the Confederation of Indian Industry to hold their SME conference in Wales in October this year.”

The visit also included Bombay where there was a  meeting with representatives from Tata, which is currently a major employer in Wales.
