Determined to deepen economic links with India: UK Investment Minister
Grimstone also said that both the countries have supported each other throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
The UK remains one of the top destinations for Indian investors, he added.
''I really believe that long last, we may now be on a path, which will end up with our two nations entering into a free trade agreement,'' he said.
Further, he said the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's visit to India has had to be postponed, ''but I know there is going to be some virtual interaction shortly and I know that the visit will be re-planned for later in the year''.
The bilateral trade between the two countries stood at USD 15.45 billion in 2019-20 as against USD 16.87 billion in 2018-19.
