Speech of the Hon’ble CM of Karnataka during interaction with the  British Prime Minister on 08.11.16 Right Honorable Theresa May, Prime Minister of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, I heartily welcome you and your delegation to the State of Karnataka and to the City of Bengaluru. Karnataka has historically had a deep relationship with the United Kingdom.  With several common interests with UK, Karnataka is the State of natural choice for spearheading a strong Indo-UK partnership. Bengaluru, our State Capital, is well known for its innovation, enterprise and a flourishing IT industry.  Bengaluru understands business and that is the reason for the location of many successful UK businesses here. Madam Prime Minister, 15% of UK based companies in India are in Karnataka employing 23,000 people. These companies are primarily in ICT, advanced manufacturing, aerospace, health and life science sectors, in the light of the innate strength of Karnataka in technology and knowledge based enterprises.  Madam Prime Minister, we in Karnataka are delighted that in your maiden visit to India, you have chosen Karnataka and Bengaluru as your first place of visit outside New Delhi. I am confident that this visit would be immensely fruitful. and I assure you that we will work to build a very solid economic relationship between UK and Karnataka.Several Karnataka based companies such as Infosys, Wipro, TCS, Dynamatic Technologies, Biocon, Microlabs continue to expand their presence and create jobs in the UK. Karnataka presents a unique combination of a large pool of skilled work force, great technical expertise and a thriving business and industrial ecosystem. Karnataka is one of the leaders among Indian states in Aerospace, Automobiles, Manufacturing, Machine tools, Information Technology, Bio-technology, Pharmaceuticals and life sciences.
\We seek investments from UK based firms in renewable energy and for creating smart cities.  The strength of UK research and innovation and the implementation capabilities of the State of Karnataka together can help forge a unique partnership in the days to come.

 Karnataka is blessed with a strong cultural heritage. Hampi, the erstwhile capital of Vijayanagara Empire, which flourished in the 14th Century is a UNESCO recognised World Heritage site. The Gol Gumbaz of Vijayapura is a medieval architectural marvel. The Mysuru Dasara is a world renowned annual cultural festival. We are also known for our lush evergreen  forests and rich bio diversity.  Karnataka is home to the largest number of tigers in the world.  There is tremendous potential to develop tourism in the State. The State is in the process of putting in place Bengaluru - Mumbai Economic Corridor, under which three greenfield self contained townships will be set up.  We shall be happy to work together to identify opportunities for UK to work with Karnataka for creating next generation logistics, infrastructure and connectivity across fast growing regions of southern and western India. UK has been constantly ranked as one of the best countries in terms of Ease of Doing Business.  In our State, we have achieved significant progress in the recent months in improving the Ease of Doing Business.  A report was prepared last year by the British Deputy High Commission in Bengaluru on Doing Business in Karnataka. Building on that report we are keen to work with the U.K. Government on this front. Karnataka would be hosting the much acclaimed Aero India show in February 2017 in Bengaluru.  Several British companies under the aegis of UK Trade and Investment have actively participated in the previous Aero India events.  We welcome the UK Government and the British industry tticipate in this year’s event, and to chalk out a clear cut plan to build up on our mutual strengths of aerospace and defence. Madam Prime Minister, our fast growing and high value tech sectors rely upon an effective immigration policy that attracts high-skilled workers and minimises barriers to the flow of talented people. The movement of skilled tech workers from India should be seen as a trade priority rather than an immigration issue. Temporary placement of highly-skilled individuals into the UK provides a significant economic boost while having a negligible impact on net migration. Under the new visa rules announced by the UK Home Office, anyone applying after November 24 under the Tier 2 intra-company transfer (ICT) category would be required to meet a higher salary threshold of 30,000 pounds from the earlier 20,800 pounds. I request you to review the new policy so that the earlier threshold is continued.   Madam Prime Minister, our Government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to set up UK Health City Project. 400 acres of land has been earmarked for this initiative at Dharwad. We look forward to the early setting up of this project which would support manufacturing and research and development in medical devices and equipments. We are also keen to collaborate with UK in the fields of maternal and child nutrition and higher education in the public health and health care.   I am happy to inform you that Karnataka Minister for IT, BT and Tourism Sri Priyank Kharge, who is here, would be visiting UK this week to attend World Travel Mart event. I have asked him to use the opportunity to build better understanding for long-lasting partnership between UK & Karnataka. Madam Prime Minister, I sincerely thank you once again for choosing Karnataka and Bengaluru in your first visit to India. Karnataka, with its strong traditions of innovation and enterprise, with its bright young people, salubrious weather and rich traditions, invites you for many more future visits. I wish you a very happy and productive visit in India and a very successful tenure as Prime Minister of UK.*****1arnataka is blessed with a strong cultural heritage.
