The UK Home Secretary, Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP said:
“As Home Secretary, I am delighted to be able to attend the 2018 Indian Awards ceremony, which recognises outstanding contributions to the UK-India relationship. The UK is one of the world’s oldest democracies, and India the largest. Our collaboration is a force for good – our shared values magnified by the ‘living bridge’ formed of a breadth of personal, professional, cultural and institutional ties. With so much in common, it’s only natural that Britain and India continue working together to make our people, and the world, safer and more prosperous”.
H.E. Mr Y.K. Sinha, The High Commissioner of India said:
“Commencing last year, The Indian Awards recognises and celebrates the outstanding work done by individuals, businesses and organisations in the UK, who have contributed to strengthening the UK-India partnership in recent years.

The UK’s International Trade Secretary, The Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP said:
“India is the world’s seventh-largest economy and the fourth largest investor into the UK, while UK investment in India grew by 8.8% in the year to 2016. As an international economic department, the Department for International Trade continues to work closely with our Indian colleagues to maximise trade between our nations and I welcome this fantastic initiative, celebrating the historic trading ties between the UK and India.”
