"If Bangalore is the city that symbolizes India's reawakening, Infosys has good claim to be the company," said British Prime Minister David Cameron. "There's energy and passion about this place that I have to say is awe-inspiring," he added.

Cameron visited the Infosys campus on Wednesday, July 28, 2010, bringing with him the "biggest visiting delegation of any British Prime Minister in recent memory." The delegation included members of his Cabinet, dynamic business leaders, leaders of industry, social entrepreneurs, civic leaders, personalities from the most forward-looking arts institutions and pioneers of community activism.

Addressing delegates, senior business leaders and officials at the Convention Center on the campus, he said "I want to take the relationship between India and Britain to the next level. I want to make it stronger, wider and deeper."

"And today, I want to make the case for this relationship. I want to explain why India is so important to Britain’s future. I want to tell Indians watching what Britain has to offer them. And I want to set out the common challenges we must meet together in the years ahead."

N.R. Narayana Murthy, Chairman of the Board and Chief Mentor, Infosys Technologies, hosted Cameron's visit to the campus. The British PM was taken on a tour of the campus. He interacted with participants of a forum organized by ‘Common Purpose’ a UK-based not for profit organization.

Biocon Chairman Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Wipro Chairman Azim Premji, Narayana Hrudayalaya Chairman Dr Devi Shetty were among those present.
