Sussex security tech firm flies to India with the PM
A cutting-edge security software firm from Sussex yesterday took the Prime Ministerial plane to India as part of a high-profile trade trip.
Horsham’s Aralia Systems Ltd designs software to help enhance security in airports, railway stations and other public buildings around the world.
The three-day trip is allowing Aralia and 38 other British small and medium-sized businesses to connect and scope out business opportunities in one of the world’s biggest economies.
Designed to help boost hi-tech trade between India and the UK – part of the visit included South Asia’s biggest tech summit jointly by hosted by Theresa May and Indian PM Narendra Modi.
Prime Minister Theresa May said:
“That’s why I’m pleased Aralia joined me on this important trade mission as we showcase to India the very best that British business has to offer.
“I’m proud to say that Britain is home to some of the world’s most innovative technology firms – all of whom are helping us to forge a new global role for the UK.”
Glynn Wright CEO of Aralia Systems said:
“We are honoured to accompany the Prime Minister on her trade mission to India.
“Global security is constantly evolving and becoming more complex. That’s why we continue to innovate and develop new technology to help the public and private sector keep people safe.
“India is an important market for us and we look forward showcasing what our company has to offer.”
The Prime Minister is using the Indian visit to deliver on the ambitious vision for Britain after Brexit she set out in a speech last month, forging a new global role for the UK as a country with the self-confidence and the freedom to look beyond the continent of Europe.
It will help deliver on her pledge to create an economy that truly works for all, by introducing new and emerging enterprises, as well as more established players, to the key Indian market.
