Access India with UKTI, Santander and Northamptonshire Chamber event 18 March


Sywell Aerodrome, Aviator Hotel, Sywell, Northamptonshire NN6 0BN

Friday, 18 March 2016, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM.

Join the UK India Business Council, UKTI East Midlands, Santander and Northamptonshire Chamber at an insightful Access India event.

Why India?

The recent visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted the strong bilateral relationship between the UK and India, and further strengthens ties between the two countries.

India’s economy continues to grow at around 6%, with several Indian states expanding at over 10%. So, there are compelling reasons why India should prominently figure in every business’ strategy, and the potential rewards are significant. However, there are nuances that companies looking at India need to be aware of, and the Indian market requires thorough preparation and a long term view.

About the event:

• Listen to our knowledgeable speakers share their expertise and offer first-hand advice on key topics; from choosing your Indian business partner, protecting your IP, trade finance, staff recruitment and adapting your product for India

• Network with like-minded delegates and experts, and participate in a Q&A with UK businesses that are succeeding in India – hear why they chose this market and how they did it.
