British Prime Minister Theresa May will use her first bilateral trade trip since taking office to try to boost ties with India before leaving the European Union.While Britain cannot sign trade deals with third countries until it is outside the EU, the government is keen to hold preparatory discussions.May will visit New Delhi and outsourcing hub Bengaluru before leaving Tuesday. Her office said commercial deals to be signed during the trip were expected to create a total of 1,370 jobs in the U.K.May and Modi will also launch a partnership on smart cities and urban development which could generate business worth up to 2 billion pounds for British firms over the next five years, her office said.Some have suggested that if the U.K. stays in the EU's customs union it will not be able to strike trade deals with third countries such as India, but the British official disputed this.
