Mumbai: Stating that Britain is looking to be "India's partner of choice", British Prime Minister David Cameron said he is impressed to see India's rise.

"India's rise is going to be one of the great phenomena of this century and it is incredibly impressive to see - the vibrancy of your democracy, the great strength of the diversity of your country and the enormous power of your economy, that is going to be one of the top three economies by 2030," he said while addressing officials and executives of Hindustan Unilever.

"Britain wants to be your partner of choice. We've only just started on the sort of partnership that we could build," he said adding: "As far as I'm concerned, the sky is the limit."

With an agenda to forge greater trade ties with India, Cameron landed in Mumbai Monday morning leading a 100-member business delegation.

Starting his three-day visit from India's commercial capital, he said: "UK can forge one of the great partnerships of the 21st century with India."

Cameron said that it is fantastic to be back in Mumbai. "I am very proud of the fact that I have been the prime minister for two and a half years and this is my second visit to India, because I want Britain and India to have a very special relationship," he said.

Stating that he has brought to India the biggest delegation out of Britain, Cameron said Britain wants to tie up with India in many different ways.
