Balfour Beatty chief among Cameron's India delegation

Balfour Beatty chief executive Ian Tyler is part of a huge trade mission to India, which is being fronted by Prime Minister David Cameron.

Mr Cameron will lead over 50 top executives from Britain’s leading firms in an attempt to win work in various sectors from the country’s growing economy.

Other business leaders from the building and infrastructure sector include: Arup global chairman Philip Dilley, JCB chairman Sir Anthony Bamford, Johnson Matthey chairman Sir John Banham, Cairn Energy chief executive Sir Bill Gammell and Solar Century chairman Jeremy Leggett.

Helping business leaders target growth abroad could offset problems in the UK economy, which is expected to increase in size by 2.2 per cent in 2010, according to Ernst & Young - which revised this figure down from 2.7 per cent yesterday.

In contrast, India’s GDP growth is expected to be around 8.5 per cent this year.
