India Market Visit
Ahmedabad & Mumbai
9 – 17 January 2013
India, a market of huge potential
India simply cannot be ignored by UK companies that are seeking to expand and go international. UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) in the East Midlands would like to invite you to join us on our forthcoming market visit to Ahmedabad & Mumbai during January 2013.
The UK has strong ties with India, and UK companies are well positioned to take advantage of this growing export and investment market. India is the second fastest growing economy, after China, with a rapidly expanding consumer class.
Liberalisation of the economy continues apace, with trade barriers largely being removed.
Why join this mission?
The business opportunities, which a few years ago, existed only in the traditional economic heartlands of Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore have now stretched to the emerging cities of Nagpur, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Pune and Jaipur, to name but a few. Privatisation programmes are gradually reducing the still significant role of the public sector in the production and consumption of goods.
Mumbai is the commercial capital of India. This modern and cosmopolitan city generates 40% of India’s GNP, its port handles 50% of the country’s foreign trade and nearly 40% of India’s textile industry is located here- clearly establishing its credentials as the financial hub of India. With a large population of almost 6 million and opportunities across most sectors, Ahmedabad is set to become one of the country’s major business centres – with business costs at roughly one-third less than cities like Delhi and Bangalore.
