TWIN brothers from the East End have been globetrotting around Asia as part of the Prime Minister's Global Fellowship.

Kawsar and Sarwar Zaman, both 18 and living in Bethnal Green, were among 100 students to be selected in the UK for the programme which is designed to introduce young people to the social and economic climate of Brazil, India and China.

Kawsar spent six weeks in India, sharing his time between Delhi and Bangalore where he worked two weeks at the petrol company Shell.

And Sarwar who studied his A-levels at Tower Hamlets College spent six weeks in China including Beijing and Shanghai and worked for two weeks at the global company TATA.

Kawsar who is studying law at the London School of Economics with his brother said: "It's been an incredible journey and it has allowed me to see at first hand the new world of the 21st century that is opening up before us."

The brothers will be meeting Gordon Brown at Downing Street in November to tell him about their experiences.
