Britain should not wait until it leaves the European Union to develop deeper trade ties with India, Prime Minister Theresa May said in New Delhi Monday, promising to ease access for Indian business travelers but not for its students.Prime Minister Narendra Modi said it was vital that India and Britain work together to define the knowledge economy of the 21st century, and invited U.K. partners to get involved in his signature policy initiatives such as his plan to develop 100 "smart" cities.During that period, when May was interior minister, the number of Indian students in Britain fell to 11,864 in June 2015 from 68,238 five years earlier.May said it was "crucial" that those who do need to travel between U.K. and India for business can do so, but she indicated earlier that she saw no reason to change the U.K. visa regime.
