The Rt. Hon. Eric Pickles MP, British Cabinet Minister for Communities and Local Government, will lead a UK business delegation to India from 2 to 7 June 2013. Fortel’s Chairman is part of the delegation team aiming to communicate the best of Britain’s offerings to India’s leading politicians and company directors, and vice versa. The accompanying delegation will explore partnerships in the built environment, infrastructure, construction and water sectors. Ahead of his visit, Mr Pickles said: It is a privilege to lead a British business delegation to India. India is one of the biggest emerging markets in the world and we can be India’s partner of choice. We both agree success will hinge on our ability to put in place the right infrastructure and we are well placed to help India with their plans. The companies I will be introducing represent the best of British. They not only have world class expertise in big construction projects and urban renewal, but they know how to bring economic growth to different parts of a country.
