UK keen to invest in infrastructure

The United Kingdom evinces keen interest to invest in Assam where chief minister Tarun Gogoi assures its envoy that the law and order situation is fresh and conducive.

During his meeting with Gogoi, British Deputy High Commissioner in Kolkata Scott Furssedonn Wood said that UK investors are interested in the infrastructure sector. Gogoi told Wood on Friday that outside investors have been showing interest in the state where the land prices have also gone up.

According to Gogoi, holding of international sports event like the Indian Super League in Guwahati  these days itself proves beyond doubt that that the law and order situation has improved considerably.

A delegation of British Parliamentarians was likely to visit Assam as part of a goodwill visit to India in the first part of next year.
