Why and how to invest in India – exclusive workshop with the Access India cohort, together with the High Commission of India and UKIBC
12 June 2018
Access India programme (AIP) is one of the market entry support initiatives launched by the Indian government in the UK. It’s a flagship initiative of the High Commission of India in London and aims to encourage and assist UK SMEs' access the Indian market. We, as one of the associate knowledge partners to AIP, are delighted to host the initial workshops to the first cohort on ‘doing business in India’ and ‘tax and regulatory aspects’. We are pleased to welcome the High Commission of India and UK India Business Council and look forward to run these sessions jointly. These tailored workshops will be focused around some of the key criteria companies should consider whilst looking at the Indian market, how can one tackle some of the existing challenges and what the potential opportunities are. India has consistently seen growth over the past few years, despite some momentary slowdown due to policy reforms. However, the long term economic outlook for India looks promising: PwC economists predict real GDP growth of 7.44% for India in 2018 with a consistent growth forecast of over 7% for the coming years.
The UK and Indian governments have expressed a natural ambition to reinforce the mutual strategic partnership, based on shared values, common law and institutions. The UK has been the single largest G20 investor in India for nearly a decade and India has the fourth largest number of investment projects in the UK. Furthermore, investor friendly reforms by the Indian government and discussions under the backdrop of Brexit opens up more collaborative opportunities for domestic and international investors.
