LONDON: India's key messages during the Commonwealth summit being held in London this week will focus on ease of doing business in the country and creating a strong export economy, a senior Indian diplomat said today. The inaugural Commonwealth Trade Ministers' Meeting is being held over two days starting today, with ministers and policymakers from across the Commonwealth set to discuss areas for increased collaboration.
India is being represented at the meeting by Commerce Secretary Rita Teaotia. "The key messages are around ease of doing business in India and all the initiatives being taken by the Government of India. To a large extent there is a recognition that India is doing well in this area and gone up in the World Bank rankings. There is a recognition that trade and investment go together," said Dinesh Patnaik, deputy high commissioner to the UK.
