In partnership with Corporate Catalyst India
India is rightly seen as one of the key markets for U.K. companies now and in the future. With an economy rapidly expanding in both scale and diversity, supported by massive government investment in many sectors, it undoubtedly presents opportunities for companies wishing to enter the market, or to grow their business in, and with, India.
But to be successful it is important to understand its complexities. In addition to the central government in New Delhi there are 29 state governments and 85 city governments. There is no 'one size fits all' approach to success but careful research pays off whether you are looking to find a distributor for your products or develop a strategy for manufacturing in India.
The Institute has partnered with an Institute member, a leading Indian professional services company, to offer a one day training course to separate the fact from the fiction, and guide you in doing business in India. ASA and Associates and its consulting arm, Corporate Catalyst India, has over 750 professionals across 8 partner led offices in India serving a range of Indian and international clients.
The workshop will include a live weblink to India to enable you to put your questions to the professionals in the market.
