Khan, who arrived in Mumbai today as a part of his visit to India to boost economic and cultural ties said, "The key message I am bringing to India is that London is open for talent, business and partnerships."
"We're keen to encourage talented Indians to come and study in London," he added.
For someone whose parents and grandparents are from India, Khan said, "I am really proud that I have come to India as the Mayor of London."
Sadiq is accompanied by a delegation of UK business leaders and will meet with politicians, investors and entrepreneurs from across South Asia on the trip, which is aimed at strengthening trade and investment links as well as promoting cultural exchange.
The visit is primary focussed on spreading the message that London is open to those looking to work, visit or study following the United Kingdom European Union membership referendum or the EU referendum, also known as the Brexit referendum.
Between 2005 and 2016, the UK was the second largest destination for Indian investment and 44 per cent of the fastest growing Indian companies now have a base in London.
