Aaditya Thackeray – Minister, Maharashtra Govt. :
Today, I hosted Secretary of State for International Trade, Minister for Women & Equalities, UK, Liz Truss and Trade Commissioner Alan Gemmell at the BMC HQ where I took them for a heritage tour of the building.
We discussed trade, environment, tourism and cultural ties between Maharashtra and the United Kingdom and will strive to work together, unlock the potential between the two cultural hotspots of Mumbai and London. Cricket was definitely not discussed today!
Mayor Kishore Pednekar ji, Municipal Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal ji, Standing Committee Chairman Yashwant Jadhav ji and others were also present, given Mumbai’s age old cultural and historic relationship with the United Kingdom
