Mumbai: British Prime Minister David Cameron is arriving in Mumbai on Monday morning on his second state visit to the country. Cameron, on a three-day visit, comes to the city close on the heels of French President Francois Hollande, who was in the megapolis last Friday as a part of his state visit and met the head honchos of India Inc.
Cameron, who will leave for New Delhi the same evening, will be accompanied by a large business delegation including chief executives of leading British business houses, vice-chancellors of reputed universities, dignitaries and senior officials from 10 Downing Street among others. "In Mumbai, Cameron's programme includes visits to Hindustan Unilever headquarters in the morning, a luncheon meeting with business leaders at the Taj Palace Hotel, a visit to St Xaviers School, and laying a wreath at the Police Memorial, among other engagements," a MEA statement said.
Besides meeting the industry leaders and other engagements during his one-day trip to the city, Cameron is also expected to attend a private function being hosted by a large conglomerate before leaving for the national capital, according to industry sources. This would be his second visit to the country since he took over the mantle, the first being soon after assuming office in May 2010.
