The coalition Government have committed to enhanced partnerships with emerging powers, including India and China, with trade and investment at the centre of our prosperity and growth. This includes maximising our comparative advantages, including for world-class UK technology companies.
We have ongoing Government to Government dialogue with India and China through the respective Joint Economic Trade Committee and Commission. By this process, we are seeking greater access for UK companies, including SMEs. In addition, we continue to provide advice, support and expertise through UK Trade and Investment to help our firms access these markets.
The Prime Minister has also launched the global Technology Taskforce which, with £15 million of funding, will recruit the very best technology companies and talent to Britain and help entrepreneurial and innovative start-ups in the UK to internationalise.
