The UK enjoys a strong trade relationship with India. Total trade in goods and services between the UK and India reached over £20bn in the period July 2018 to March 2019. The Department for International Trade promotes UK trade interests through our overseas network. This includes Gujarat State where we have a team based at the Deputy High Commission in Ahmedabad. My Rt Hon. Friend the Secretary of State for International Trade also leads a Joint Economic & Trade Committee in which ministers discuss the removal of market access barriers and means to increasing bilateral trade.
