New Delhi, November 14

Britain’s Prince Charles today concluded his two-day visit to India after holding a diverse range of engagements to deepen bilateral cooperation on issues like sustainability and climate change. 

Prince Charles visited the Meteorological Department here on Wednesday to discuss India’s weather forecasting systems. He was given a tour of the control room, showcasing how the centre operates to forecast, track and respond to cyclones and other potential disasters, including cyclone ‘Bulbul’ in Bangladesh.

He held a bilateral discussion with President Ram Nath Kovind, where they noted their mutual interest in green issues and traditional medicine, as well as the important role of the Commonwealth. The President gave Prince Charles a tour of the herbal garden where he planted a champa tree in his name.

In Mumbai on Thursday, he attended a discussion with business leaders on how to accelerate a transition to sustainable markets and later met artist Haribabu Natesan whose artwork from recycled material was on display  at the meeting.
