He will also be participating in the Indo-UK Joint Economic and Trade Committee (JETCO) review meeting, which was established in September 2004 to look into the enhancement of bilateral trade and investment between the two countries.

India also reported a trade surplus in 2005-06 as its exports to Britain rose to $5.1 billion while imports registered a $3.8 billion rise in 2005-06.
