Topics will include trade relations, rules and regulations, dispute-settlements and other investment issues.

Conference co-organiser Professor Leïla Choukroune said: ‘While India is celebrating 70 years of independence, Brexit puts the UK-India partnership for ‘shared values and global capability’ to a new fundamental test.
