Strong case for direct route from Manchester to Mumbai or Dehli, says MIDAS CEO

Securing a direct flight between Manchester and one of India’s major cities such as Mumbai or Delhi would further strengthen developing economic ties between the two destinations according to Tim Newns, chief executive of MIDAS, Manchester’s inward investment agency.

Speaking at the India – UK Economic Relations Conference as part of Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) UK Conference in London, the investment boss said that as relationships between the UK and India develop, Indian businesses are increasingly seeing the benefits of choosing Manchester as a base of operations.

The CII UK conference brought senior business leaders from India to the UK for a three day agenda including meetings with UK government, business and university representatives.

Mr. Newns was joined by a delegation of Manchester business leaders, attending the event to promote the benefits of Manchester as a leading European business location, and communicate the long-term objectives of the Manchester-India agenda.

The Manchester delegation included representatives from BDP, Clyde & Co LLP, Deliotte, EV Group, Manchester Airports Group, Manchester Metropolitan University, PWC, Slater Heelis, University of Salford, and Vernacare.
