India, UK to join hands on infrastructure

India and UK have agreed to work towards a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will enhance capacity building, land economics, heritage man­agement, sustainable master pl­anning and transport planning. Sharing of knowledge in the formu­lation of public private par­t­nership (PPP) models would form another area of cooperation. Minister of Urban Development Kamal Nath and Minister of State for Dece­ntralisation and Cities (UK) Gregory Clark agreed to work towards an MoU during a meeting in London recently. Nath was in London to parti­cipate in the UK-India Business Forum, organised by the UKIBC, UK Trade and Inve­stment, and Indian Chamber of Commerce.

Nath also participated in a meeting of the UK-India Urban Infrastructure Group, organised by the UK Business Council and UK Trade and Investment. The UK-India Urban Infra­structure Group has pro­posed conducting an urban reg­eneration scoping study, to be fully funded by the UK gover­nment, and private sector par­ticipants for Kolkata.
