India fortunate to have a leader like Narendra Modi: Ex-UK PM David Cameron

Prime News, National (Kolkata), July 20:- Hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi, former British Prime Minister David Cameron on Thursday said that India is fortunate to have a leader like Narendra Modi who has a clear vision.

Cameron, however, said that greater focus is needed on developing skills and infrastructure in India.

“India is fortunate to have a leadership with a clear vision. When I met Prime Minister Modi, I saw he had deeply thought about long-term problems,” Cameron said in reply to a question at the Annual General Meeting of the Indian Chamber of Commerce here.

Earlier, in his speech, Cameron lauded PM Modi’s flagship programme ‘Skill India’ but pointed out that such goals cannot be achieved by the government initiatives alone.

He recalled that India-Britain relationship was one of the priorities during his premiership, and hoped India would continue to open up.

Terming India as the ”land of opportunities” which has one of the fastest growing economies of its size, Cameron said the prosperity of countries like India and the UK depends upon markets to operate and enterprises to flourish.

“Britain became a successful economy through its desire to trade, invest, sell and innovate, while India, by setting its enterprise free, was able to lift 150 million people out of poverty in just two decades. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
