Answered By: 
The Mayor

I currently have no plans to open offices in Delhi or Mumbai. We already have London and Partners representatives on the ground in India working to promote the opportunities that exist in London. I believe by working closely with colleagues in UKTI we can effectively build on our already good standing with Indian businesses and continue to effectively promote London.
