British Prime Minister Theresa May’s visit to India after Brexit has a curious news to the Keralites. The delegation team accompanying May has a Malayali.

Editor of Asianlite, Anasudhin Azeez is the only Indian journalist in the delegation.

The British Prime Minister’s visit is the first to a non- European country in the post-Brexit time. From the statements she has made, it is very clear that the UK is looking for a trade partner after the decisive referendum.

A high-level business delegation will accompany the Prime Minister on her visit.

Asianlite is a newspaper published from Manchester in London. Founded in 2007 by Azeez, it is an Asian business development network (ABDN) and the British Association of Physicians of Indian origin (BAPIO).

The weekly played very important role in formulating the strategy of 2015 Conservative party victory. It helped the party to compile the British-Asian votes, especially Indians. Britain’s former Prime Minister David Cameron visited Asianlite newsroom during the election campaign which made big headlines.

In 2012, the newspaper won  How-Do newspaper of the year award beating Rupert Murdoch’s The Times. That launched the newspaper into the mainstream conscience of the British community.

Azeez had previously worked with many media organisations in India and the Middle East including Free Press Journal, Indian Express, The Gulf Today, Khaleej Times and Yorkshire Post.

Hailing from Alwaye in Ernakulam District, he is an alumnus of Kerala Press Academy.
