Minister for Investment Gerry Grimstone said, "Prodapt’s decision to pick the UK as its investment destination of choice is a vote of confidence in the UK economy, and demonstrates the strength of UK and India’s bilateral relationship. We look forward to working together closely to bring high value jobs and economic growth to every corner of the UK as we build back stronger from the pandemic."
