Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner is home to many constituents with Indian connections. Since my election in 2019, I have been eager to form close ties with members of the community and the team from the Indian High Commission whose support can be invaluable to many. Following the success of the G20 summit over the summer, relations between India and the UK are entering an important stage as negotiations on the Free Trade Agreement reaches a conclusion.
I am grateful to Ovessa Iqbal and the team from the High Commission for their ongoing engagement. Today in Westminster, Ovessa took the time to brief me on the progress towards the FTA as well as upcoming events including Diwali celebrations in November. There is much to look forward to.
