David Cameron's trip to India, described as the 'biggest ever UK trade delegation by a British Prime Minister", aimed to strengthen business relationships between the UK and India. With Europe still facing repercussions of its sovereign debt crisis, the United Kingdom is looking to make more inroads into the Indian Market than ever.
On 18th February 2013 David Cameron arrived in India with over 100 delegates, including four ministers and nine parliamentarians.
Sales and Marketing director of Griffon Hoverwork, Mike Coveney, attended along with over 100 other business leaders. After arriving at Mumbai airport, Mike was whisked away to the Unilever headoffice for a talk by CEO Nitin Paranjpe. The three day delegation included a host of networking events, talks and cultural visits. On the final evening Mike attended the Queen's Birthday Party along with over two thousand other guests from politics, military, business, cultural and media.
Following its deal with the Indian Coastguard to supply 12 hovercraft, Griffon Hoverwork is looking to expand further into India in the future.
