Along with a high-level UK delegation including cabinet ministers, Cameron will be visiting IT giant Infosys Technologies Ltd and defence PSU Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) on Wednesday.

He will call on Governor H R Bhardwaj at Raj Bhavan before visiting Infosys campus in the Electronic City.

“Cameron will be in our campus for about two hours. A presentation will be made to him by our top management on the company's global software operations.
He will also address the media around noon,” a Infosys spokesperson said. Infosys Chairman and Chief Mentor N R Narayana Murthy, Co-founder and former vice-chairman Nandan Nilekani, who currently heads the Unique Identification (UID) project, and other board members will interact with Cameron and his 90-member delegation.
The then British premier Tony Blair had inaugurated the eighth partnership summit of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in the campus on January 5, 2002 ,  he added.
Cameron will also visit the HAL complex for a first-hand account of its various activities and operations.

“He is scheduled to visit our complex at our airport after lunch. He will be introduced to various products, including aircraft and helicopters and interact with the top management,” HAL Chairman Ashok Nayak said.

Cameron's visit to HAL assumes significance as the British defence group BAE Systems is waiting to bag an order for delivering 57 additional advanced jet trainers (AJTs) Hawk to the Indian Air Force and the Indian Navy.
The British Prime Minister will be leaving for New Delhi the same afternoon.
