British Prime Minister David Cameron

British Prime Minister David Cameron will be visiting India on July 29 and 30, diplomatic sources said.

Cameron, 43, undertaking the visit within months of assuming office, has indicated that he wants to "establish a new special relationship with India".

He is the youngest British Prime Minister since 1812 and will be accorded a traditional reception at the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhavan on June 30. He is expected to hold discussions with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the same day.

New Delhi is welcoming the head of Britain's first post-war coalition, (Conservative-Liberal Democrat) government, at a time of new verve in the ties between the two countries on account of trade relations.

India is the second largest foreign direct investor in the UK after the US, and India is also the first emerging economy among Cameron’s overseas stops after taking the reins of Britain.
