Prime Minister welcomes 300 new jobs in South Sefton

The Prime Minister has welcomed a decision to create more than 300 new jobs in Liverpool during a trade mission to India.

The largest ever Prime Ministerial trade delegation arrived in India today (Monday) as part of the Government’s determined effort to promote British business abroad and to help Britain succeed in the global race.

Over 100 companies are participating in the three day visit, including more than 30 small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), along with Ministers Lord Green, David Willetts, Hugo Swire and Greg Barker.

They will meet with a number of Indian Government Ministers, inward investors and businesses in both Mumbai and Delhi, as the Government seeks to link British businesses up to one of the world’s fastest growing economies, predicted to become the third largest by 2050.

New trade deals have also been announced, which will create 500 new jobs in Britain and safeguard around 2,000. They include Tata Consultancy Services which will set up a state-of-the-art delivery centre in Liverpool, employing over 300 people.

Prime Minister David Cameron said:

“Tata has played a transformative role in the UK and I’m delighted that their consultancy service is now opening a delivery centre in Liverpool creating 300 new jobs.

“This will make a real difference to the local economy and further strengthen the company’s ties to the UK.”
