Indonesia: UK PM Sunak meets India's Modi on sidelines of G20 summit

Indonesia, Bali
November 16, 2022 at 14:10 GMT +00:00 · Published

New Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Rishi Sunak met with the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the first time, on Wednesday, in Bali, on the sidelines of the G20 summit.

The two men discussed bilateral trade, with Sunak stating earlier on Wednesday that the UK was negotiating a trade deal with India.

Sunak made history as the first British-Asian PM, as well as the youngest since William Pitt the Younger in 1783.

He was widely praised for his financial measures, including the furlough scheme, during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, his wife’s tax affairs, a £730 million fortune and his possession of a US green card while chancellor has led to questions from the opposition about his commitment and understanding of day-to-day struggles during a cost-of-living crisis.
