“The Government’s industrial strategy is giving business the confidence to increase investment,” said Mr Cable during a tour of British investments across India earlier this month.. “Johnson Matthey is a fine example of the UK company success story in India and I am pleased to have today received the 25 millionth autocatalyst produced in India by the business at their Manesar facility.”

“Britain and India have long enjoyed a strong, collaborative business relationship - demonstrated by the fact that we are their largest investor in the G20 accounting for around 30% of their annual investment - while India invests more into the UK than any other country. I hope this relationship continues to go from strength to strength through companies like Johnson Matthey.”
