Highlights

  • UK PM Boris Johnson met industrialist Gautam Adani in Ahmedabad today.
  • He visited the Adani Group Headquarters in the city, during his Gujarat visit.
  • Boris Johnson is on a 2-day visit to India.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday met billionaire businessman Gautam Adani at Adani global headquarters. Johnson is on a two-day official India visit to India. The British PM landed at the Ahmedabad airport earlier today, where he was accorded a grand welcome.

Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani informed about the meeting in a tweet. "Honoured to host @BorisJohnson, the first UK PM to visit Gujarat, at Adani HQ. Delighted to support climate & sustainability agenda with focus on renewables, green H2 & new energy. Will also work with UK companies to co-create defence & aerospace technologies," Adani tweeted.

During his visit in Ahmedabad, Johnson visited Sabarmati Ashram.

Johnson's two-day visit to India will focus on stepping up cooperation in the Indo-Pacific, giving momentum to negotiations on Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the two countries as well as enhancing defence ties.

This is the first time a UK Prime Minister is in Gujarat, India's fifth-largest state and the ancestral home of around half of the British-Indian population in the UK.
