Officials Lack Vision, Not Good for UK Growth, says IAG Chief Willie Walsh

David-Cameron-George-OsborneMr. David Cameron and Mr. George Osborne have a lack of vision for making any growth in the UK economy, says IAG chief Mr. Willie Walsh.

In his recent statements, Mr. Walsh, the head of the British Airways' parent company said that the Prime Minister and the Chancellor lack vision in how to grow the UK economy.

He explained about how the Britain's bureaucratic visa regime is delaying the launch of a new route to one of the China's biggest industrial centres. This recent attack on the Conservative leadership is made only a week before the party's conference in Manchester.

Mr. Walsh blamed the officials for not setting out a possible long-term growth plan for the UK economy. He is the chief executive of the International Airlines Group. The talk mainly revolves around the new air route to link Britain directly with Chengdu. It is a major centre for pharmaceutical, automotive and aerospace industries.

There is a delay of approx 12 months in the launch of same, said the official. On Sunday, British Airways have launched weekly direct flights between London and Chengdu. It has been made mandatory for the Chinese visitors to Britain to have their fingerprints taken for an easy travelling to the country.

Also, it will cost a bit more expensive than what the travelers have to pay for a Schengen visa with which they are allowed to travel to 26 European countries but not the UK, say a source.
