Wed, Jun 22, 2016, 06:57 PM
British High Commissioner in India Sir Dominic Asquith has said his country is ready to work with the Telangana government in the ‘ease of doing business’ sector.

The British diplomat had a meeting with IT Minister KT Rama Rao on Wednesday. After one-and-a-half hour meeting, Sir Dominic said his country was ready to extend cooperation in the construction of smart cities in Telangana State.

On the occasion, Rama Rao explained to the British High Commissioner about the Telangana government’s IT and industrial programmes and policies.

Both KTR and Sir Dominic expressed their readiness for sharing the Eco System for startups.

KTR said already eight States visited the T-Hub and were contemplating to take such programmes in their States. On the occasion, KTR urged the British High Commissioner to see the States as a unit instead of a nation, while examining the respective government’s policies and facilities.

The Telangana State was in top position in ‘ease of doing business’ and it was showing the work nature of the State, he said. The Telangana government was giving top priorities to IT, Pharma, Life Sciences, Aero Space etc. The government was preparing a special policy on the Aero Space sector for investments. The government will extend its full cooperation to the companies which come forward to invest in Telangana State.

“I personally tried to make the Boeing Company as partner of TATA to set up a company in Hyderabad”, KTR said. The Minister said Telangana had become an attractive destination to the investors in the IT sector. The world top four IT companies were setting up their huge campuses in Hyderabad.

The government was going to set up Big Data Center Park in Hyderabad, he revealed.

The British High Commissioner said the Clean Tech Companies were showing interest here. “We will activate Indo-British Business Council further to increase the investment opportunities”, he said.

The Commissioner invited KTR to participate in the Indo-British workshop on ‘ease of doing business’. The Commissioner praised the thought of Telangana government to set up State Desk in Britain.

Industries Principal Secretary Aravind Kumar and other higher officials participated in the meeting.
