Met the British High Commissioner Sir Dominic Asquith and Deputy High Commissioner Andrew Ayre at my residence. They discussed cooperation with the state government in the promotion of agriculture and its allied fields especially dairy farming, which I believe must be taken up as an alternative source of income by the beleaguered farmers of the state.
The envoys informed me that their country was interested in collaborating with the Punjab government in key areas of agriculture, skill development, food processing and cold chain development. I have directed officials of the state government to work closely with their counterparts in the British government to take forward the discussion on boosting business cooperation between Punjab and the United Kingdom on subjects of mutual interest.
I later presented them the copies of my books on military history as a token of my love and gratitude.
