Cameron said, I am delighted to be joining you at this first Global Summit hosted by TV9, bringing together some of the brightest minds in India to tackle some of the great challenges & opportunities that the world faces today. I remain incredibly proud of the strong relationship I helped forge between the UK and India while I was Prime Minister. I brought my first ever trade mission to India back in 2010 to help create a truly modern partnership, alive to the possibilities of the worlds oldest democracy and the worlds largest democracy. It is such a pleasure to return more than a decade on to examine with you a very different world we live in today. The challenges may be different, but the strong bonds that bind our countries together endure. There is no shortage of topics to be covered, so I look forward to joining you at this important gathering.
I am looking forward to participating in the TV9 event and discussing issues of mutual interest between India and Afghanistan, said Karzai.
TV9 Network CEO Barun Das said, With this summit, we intend to catalyse interesting conversations, discussions and deliberations that hope to show a blueprint of Indias journey to become the leader of the new world. The journey isnt without challenges. But the goal is as sacred as it is ambitious, driven by strong leadership, collective will and commitment of the entire nation. The ultimate aim of this event is to generate ideas and thoughts through free-wheeling discussions to achieve a common objective of India becoming the Vishwa Guru.
