PLEASE READ THIS:

This is the advice from the Foreign Office dated 26th Feb 2012

Travel Summary


   On 13 February 2012, an Israeli diplomatic vehicle was attacked with an explosive device in central Delhi injuring several people.

   We advise against all travel to rural areas of Jammu and Kashmir other than Ladakh; all travel in the immediate vicinity of the border with Pakistan, other than at Wagah; and all travel in Manipur. See Safety and Security - Local Travel.

   We advise against all but essential travel to Srinagar and Imphal. See Safety and Security - Local Travel.

   There is a high threat from terrorism throughout India. Recent attacks have targeted public places including those visited by foreigners. Following explosions in Delhi on 7 September and Mumbai on 13 July, major cities in India remain on high alert and British nationals should exercise caution. See Safety and Security - Terrorism.

   Anyone on a tourist visa leaving India cannot return within two months, unless they meet specific conditions. See Entry Requirements.

   Most British nationals who visit India have a trouble-free stay. See General - Consular Assistance - Statistics.

   Register with us on LOCATE before you arrive in India.

   You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling. See General - Insurance.

Safety and Security - Terrorism
There is a high threat from terrorism throughout India. Terrorists have targeted places in the past which westerners are known to visit including public places such as restaurants, hotels, railway stations, markets, places of worship and sporting venues.

Take into account security arrangements when deciding where to visit. If you see unattended baggage, report it promptly. Be particularly conscious of security considerations in the vicinity of key government installations and tourist sites; when attending public events; and in public places, including hotels, airports, shopping malls/markets and on public transport, including buses, trains, trams and the metro. Security has been strengthened, notably at major hotels and airports. Allow extra time for security checks when checking in for flights.

Take particular care in the lead up to and on days of national significance, such as Republic Day (26 January), Independence Day (15 August), Eid (31 August) and Diwali (26 October).

In the last few years there have been terrorist attacks in cities across India, including:

   On 13 February 2012, an Israeli diplomatic vehicle was attacked with an explosive device in central Delhi injuring several people.
   On 7 September 2011, a bomb exploded outside the Delhi High Court killing 15 and injuring over 70, including a British national.
   On 13 July 2011, three explosions in Mumbai at Zaveri Bazaar, Opera House and Dadar killed at least 18 people and injured over 100.
   On 7 December 2010, an explosion in the holy city of Varanasi killed one child and injured 41 people, six of whom were foreigners.
   On 8 November 2010, there were eight attacks in five districts of Assam: 13 were killed and two injured in Sonitpur district, one killed in Chirang district, one killed and two injured in Baksa district, one killed and two injured in Karbi Along Diphu district, three killed and one injured in Udalguri district.
   On 19 September 2010, two Taiwanese tourists were injured in a shooting incident near the Jama Masjid mosque in New Delhi.
   On 17 April 2010, two bombs exploded at a cricket stadium in Bangalore, Karnataka, where an IPL match was being played. 17 were injured. Three further unexploded devices were found later.
   On 13 February 2010, a bomb exploded in Pune, Maharashtra. 17 people were killed and over 50 were injured. Foreign nationals were among the casualties.
   On 16 October 2009, a bomb exploded in the town of Margao, Goa, killing one person.
   From 26-29 November 2008 terrorists attacked a number of sites in Mumbai, including luxury hotels, a railway station and a restaurant. Over 160 people were killed and more than 300 were injured. British Nationals were among the casualties.

In some areas terrorist incidents are frequent, especially Jammu and Kashmir (excluding Ladakh) and the north east. A 30-year insurgency campaign by an ultra nationalist group in Assam continues with frequent bombings and random killings. Violent extremist groups are also active in the rural areas of Bihar, Jharkand, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal and Orissa.

UK Trade Mission to TURKMENISTAN
                        5-7 March 2012
Organised by the Turkmenistan UK Trade & Industry Council, with official support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan and the British Embassy, Ashgabat.


Turkmenistan gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.  A small country in terms of population (5.2 million), its importance, both commercially and politically, lies in the fact that it has the fourth largest reserves of gas in the world, including the second largest single deposit of 21tcm.  

Turkmenistan’s hydrocarbon wealth has allowed the Government to undertake a massive development programme which is transforming the major cities of Ashgabat (the capital), Turkmenbashi (the port on the Caspian Sea), and the creation of a new tourist resort, Avaza, on the Caspian Sea.  It is this infrastructure development programme, together with the continuing development of gas fields and a wide range of services, as well as the need to educate and train the Turkmen people, which provides opportunity for UK companies.  

GDP grew at around 10% from 2006-8, dropped to 6% in 2009 with the global financial crisis and has since recovered back to previous levels.
 
The 2012 budget has recently been approved at $26 billion, and there is also significant off-budget public spending financed by higher than forecast hydrocarbon prices and the State Stabilisation Fund.  Ashgabat and the new city of Avaza will continue to absorb a substantial portion of development funds, with other priorities being in education, healthcare, sport, transportation, power, and public welfare.

The Government has prioritised the development of sporting facilities, including the construction of an “Olympics” complex in Ashgabat, which will host the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in 2017.
