Event Description :-

Crispin Simon, Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for South Asia, Rhiannon Harries, Director for Trade and Innovation for South Asia, and a team of experts will be in the UK this summer to advise UK companies on exporting to and investing in India.

The Department for International Trade (DIT) India team will be joined by advisors from Invest India as well as partners from across the UK.

India is the world’s fastest growing G20 economy and it is currently experiencing a sustained period of strong growth – powered by a demographic dividend, growing middle class and strong economic reform. In two years, India has moved from 130 to 77 in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business rankings – an unprecedented jump of 44 places. In 2018, UK exports to India grew by 17.3% to £7.6 billion, registering their 8th successive quarter of growth

DIT India has 15 priority sectors, with validated opportunities in almost all segments. Event organisers will tailor the roadshow toward sectors that are most relevant for your region.

Existing UK exporters and companies that are already trading in overseas markets and would like to learn more about the opportunities for their business in India should attend. Companies will benefit from dedicated time with our market experts, through 1-2-1 pre-booked meetings.
