Visiting British deputy premier Nick Clegg met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Monday in a bid to strengthen economic ties and bilateral relationship the two countries.

Fostering business ties is clearly the main agenda of Clegg, heading 40-strong business delegation on a three-day visit to India. Clegg also met finance minister Arun Jaitley.

Clegg said he discussed economic and commercial pacts during talks with prime minister.

“A lot of attention to economic and commercial pacts, raising both individual company specific issues and discussion of the WTO trade facilitation agreement,” Clegg told a business conference of his meetings with the Indian leaders.

“I also tried to get a clearer understanding from Jaitley and PM Modi about exactly what are the key reforms they are seeking to undertake Clegg added.

"In my meeting with PM Modi, it was our shared view that economic growth and environmental stability must go hand in hand,” said Clegg.
