Event Description:

According to Standard Chartered Bank in a report it recently published showing trade potential between the G7 and a list of nations referred to as the E7 (Bangladesh,China, Indonesia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Vietnam and India, “the UK has much to gain from looking further afield to these nations. Specifically, two countries, China and India, represent sizeable growth opportunities for the UK.”

Sizeable growth opportunities.

 There are dozens of sectors in India wanting, needing and waiting for UK SME engagement to include

  • Auto Components,
  • Aviation,Biotech,Mining,
  • Railways,Defence,Construction,
  • Electronics, IT, textiles,
  • Roads,Media and Entertainment,
  • Tourism etc etc.

The UK is the 4th largest inward investor in India with an investment of 24.6 billion US dollars and India is the 3rd largest investor in the UK. In fact, the UK attracts more Indian investment than the rest of the EU put together.

Find out about the Access India Programme is all about. SME's have to qualify to benefit from it and it does have a bias towards creating jobs and wealth in India but it can still be a win win for many SME's.

The programme, at no cost, provides:

  • A review of the India Business Plan and, as required ,converting it into reality
  • Insight into Economic incentives from the Indian government
  • An understanding of HR regulations in India and of Indian business culture
  • Market entry support including strategic advice,
  •  Information on tax
  •  Information about regulations and legal requirements in the relevant sector,
  •  Facilitation at various governmental levels in India of required approvals,
  •  Networking opportunities
  •  Mentoring with major UK business already in India to include BAE Systems, Rolls Royce, JCB, the World's leading providers of diesel and gas engines, Perkins Engines,( a subsidiary ofCaterpillar Inc,) the British Engineering company -Renishaw and TWI

This is not far short of a ONE STOP SHOP, ideal for any business but particularly SME's where risk and cost are not far from their minds. It has to be a positive advantage having such market entry support offered in this way and funded, on this occasion by India.

SME's who are minded to export or further export should certainly look to this land of opportunity and take full advantage of what the programme can offer.
