Speaker: Anna French, Deputy Head DFID India

Join us for an update on DFID strategy and work in India. Anna French, Deputy Head DFID India will share insights on DFID’s work in India.

DFID’s work in India is in partnership with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Department for International Trade and the UK Treasury to deliver joint economic development priorities in India, focusing on areas which will generate the most jobs and lift people out of poverty. UK support in India is helping to stimulate prosperity, generate jobs, develop skills and open up new markets for both countries. DFID’s work contributes to improving access to affordable and clean energy (Goal 7), supporting decent work and economic growth (Goal 8), encouraging sustainable and resilient infrastructure (Goal 9), and supporting inclusive and sustainable urbanisation in cities (Goal 11).

India is already an important economic partner for the UK. It will become even more important as it consolidates its position as a major global power. The UK is the largest G20 investor in India, while India invests more in the UK than in the rest of the EU combined. In order to maximise the potential gains from a successful and strategic UK-India Partnership, DFID is providing targeted and catalytic support to India. This support is designed to help India accelerate its development for the good of all its people, as well as generating a return for Britain by creating new markets for trade and investment.
