The UK and India are the 5th and 6th largest economies respectively and have a very strong business relationship, with India being the 2nd biggest investor in the UK and the UK being the 6th largest in India. In April this year, the two countries announced a new £1 billion enhanced trade partnership as a hopeful precursor to a free trade agreement and a catalyst for increased trade.
As highlighted in our last investment report, Indian corporates see the UK as a natural destination due to the ease of doing business there regarding language, legal framework and scope for fast growth. Likewise, the UK sees India as a close partner and, as part of a post-Brexit world, a clear strategic market to grow relations with.
Join Moore Kingston Smith and the Confederation of Indian industry to discuss the future of the UK-India living bridge and whether confidence levels have changed over the last year.
In addition, we invite you to participate in a quick survey to monitor how trends are evolving and will produce a snapshot on current confidence levels in our next India-UK investment report.
