Interactive workshop and consultations

India has opportunities in all sectors as it expands and develops. The expansion is set to accelerate with the new Modi governmanet and its recently unveiled programme for further rapid reforms aimed at creating jobs and boosting foreign investment. After a  growth of 4.8% in 2013, the World Bank forecasts that India will grow by over 6% in the next 2 years and 7% in 2016.

It is a price sensitive market, but there's a natural fit between th UK and India economies. UK companies offer goods, technology, services, and expertise in the areas that India has identified as critical for rapid economic development including: finance, infrastructure, energy efficiency, vocational skills, education and healthcare.

One of the major obstacles to businesses even considering exporting - is the fear of not being paid by an overseas client.

However, with good planning of working capital through harnessing and utilising effectively existing support and funding: understanding the range of negotiable export paymnet options; and knowing where  to go for external funding; there's no reason why getting paid by an overseas client should be any riskier than getting paid by another UK company.
