Amid growing calls to reduce immigration, he praised the UK’s “highly competitive visa regime”, positioning it as the best in the world for investment and business.

Speaking at the Global Investment Summit, the United Kingdom prime Minister said: “We no longer have a monopoly on talent in the US and we recognize that nearly half of our most progressive agencies have an immigrant founder.

“He also praised the country’s ‘very competitive visa regime’ and said, “If you are an innovator, an entrepreneur, a researcher, you should know that the UK has a very competitive visa regime for highly skilled international talent.”

His intervention comes against the backdrop of discontent within his own Conservative Party ranks after last week’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) data revealed the highest annual migration to the country.

“There may be not anything like it somewhere else in the world. And that tells you everything approximately our pro-innovation, pro-boom, seasoned enterprise philosophy. So that’s the opportunity in the UK. That’s why you have to believe me when I say this. It’s the best country in the world to invest and do business in,” he added.

The underlying message was not lost on his party’s warring factions on the day The Daily Telegraph detailed the four-point migration plan agreed between Sunak and Braverman when he took over at 10 Downing Street last October.

The Daily Telegraph reported on the migration plan agreed to by Rishi Sunak and Suella Braverman. The deal, revealed in the newspaper, includes Braverman’s proposal to close the graduate visa route, which according to recent ONS figures affects Indian nationals, who make up 43% of students granted leave for post-study work experience.
