India, Britain sign accords on IPR, ease of doing business

New Delhi, Nov 7 (IANS) India and Britain on Monday signed agreements on intellectual property rights (IPR) and ease of doing business following delegation-level talks led by Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Theresa May here.

“Advancing business through agreements. The two leaders witness exchange of MoUs in Intellectual Property and Ease of Doing Business,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.

Earlier on Monday, Modi and May addressed the India-UK Tech Summit here.

This is May’s first bilateral visit outside of Europe since she assumed the Prime Minister’s office in July this year.

She took over the prime ministership after David Cameron resigned following the historic referendum in June in which Britain voted to exit from the European Union. Cameron rooted for Britain to stay in the EU.

May’s visit comes a little less than a year after Modi’s visit to Britain in November last year.

May, who arrived here late on Sunday night on a three-day official visit to India, will also visit Bengaluru on Tuesday.
