Seeking to offer innovative solutions for Kerala's business capital Kochi, a visiting UK delegation has held discussions with top officials of the Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL).
British Deputy High Commissioner Bharat Joshi, who was part of the delegation, today said during the meeting the business delegation presented their high tech smart city solutions --on how UK companies can help development of Kochi as a smart city.
"We are very excited on the opportunities. In fact we can deliver a smart city--make Kochi a nicer place," Joshi said after the meeting.
He said the UK, having experiences in building smart cities like London and Manchester, could share the lessons they have learnt with Indian cities, including Kochi.
As many as 20 of UK's most innovative companies began their two-day visit to Kochi yesterday to explore partnership opportunities.
The business delegation had visited New Delhi during Birtish Prime Minister Theresa May's visit early this week.
The UK invests more in India than the US and Japan combined and India is the third largest investor in the UK.
