British prime minister who is in Mumbai on the first leg of his India business tour, has come up strongly in support of a Mumbai-Bangalore industrial corridor, which was propounded by Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan last week.

Addressing a business meet at Hindustan Unilever Limited in Mumbai today, Cameron said the mega of for the 1,000 km corridor between Mumbai and Bangalore would unleash huge business potential.

''It would unleash India's potential along the 1,000 km from Mumbai to Bangalore, transforming lives and putting British businesses in prime position to secure valuable commercial deals," he said on the first leg of his three-day visit.

He said the plan would generate projects worth up to $25 billion and British companies could corner a large chunk of the business.

The Mumbai-Bangalore industrial corridor is being conceived on the lines of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor, being built in partnership with Japan.

''With me I've got architects, planners and finance experts who can work out the complete solution," he said.

Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan had on 9 February announced plans for extending the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) to link Mumbai further to Bangalore, Nagpur and the Konkan.
