Friday 13 April 2012

He held talks with Balasubramanian Muthuraman while on the latest leg of the Welsh Government’s trade mission to India. Tata is a significant employer in Wales, with their operations directly employing close to 8,000 people.

The First Minister said:

"The Welsh Government has long recognised the importance of Tata to the economy of Wales and we value our close, open relationship. I would like to thank Mr B Muthuraman for an encouraging and constructive meeting. The Welsh Government remains committed to supporting the company’s operations and investment in Wales so that together we can secure a bright, long-term future. Tata are a prime example of the world-class facilities, workforce and support Wales can offer major international businesses."

Following the meeting with Tata, the First Minister hosted a business lunch for Indian companies before holding talks with the Chief Minister of Maharashtra state, Prithviraj Chavan. Maharashtra state is the wealthiest in India and has a population thought to be close to 112 million.

Parts of the trade delegation will now move onto Bangalore, another major commercial city of India.
