Editor's Note, India Investment Journal May Edition
The month of May has been packed with a very wide range of developments, including the first-ever UK-India Awards organised by India Inc. in London on May 12. The event was preceded by the annual UK-India Conclave, this time on the theme of ‘A Global Partnership: A New Era in UK-India Relations’.

Both events became the focal point for senior Indian ministers on visits to the UK earlier this month to promote India as an attractive investment destination. We cover these in our special ‘From the Scene’ section as well as a ‘Face to Face’ feature tracking Indian Minister for Power, Coal and Renewable Energy Piyush Goyal’s success on his investment scouting mission and a ‘Special Report’ on Indian Minister for Roads Transport, Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari’s plans to work closely with the UK on India’s infrastructure challenge. Both ministers listed very crucial Masala Bonds on the London Stock Exchange, developments that we delve into as part of our coverage of their visits to Europe.
