In her first bilateral visit outside Europe, British Prime Minister Theresa May will arrive in India on November 6 to hold talks with her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi and review all aspects of the India-UK strategic partnership.

The three-day visit was announced today by the External Affairs Ministry here. 

"This will be her first bilateral visit outside Europe. She will hold talks with Prime Minister Modi and review all aspects of India-UK Strategic Partnership. The Joint Economic and Trade Committee meeting will be held on the sidelines of the visit," the Ministry said. 

During the visit, Prime Minister May alongside Modi will inaugurate the India-UK Tech Summit in New Delhi jointly hosted by the Confederation of Indian Industry and the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. 

"The Summit will be an opportunity for the two sides to strengthen business to business engagement in the areas of technology, entrepreneurship and innovation, design, IPRs and higher education," it said. 

The two sides had agreed to hold the summit during Prime Minister Modi's visit to the UK in November 2015. 

The India-UK partnership has since moved into a new era, with Britain voting to leave the European Union (EU) in a referendum in June and leading to the resignation of then Prime Minister David Cameron. 

May, 60, as the post-Brexit leader of the country, has often mentioned India among the priority countries for a free trade agreement to boost the UK's ties outside the EU.
