Why India?

India is the sixth biggest economy in the world and is growing at an enviable 7%. The World Bank predicts that this will increase to 7.5% by 2020. In less than ten years, it is expected to become the third largest consumer, worth some £3.14 trillion.

India is a key market when it comes to trade and will become even more important once the United Kingdom leaves the European Union Trade as it currently stands trade is around £5bn per year around two thirds of that is Indian exports to the United Kingdom and around one third of that is UK exports to India.

The Federation of Asian Business (members are YABA, AB Connexions and NWABA) will be a key element in Britain’s attempts to establish a ‘living bridge’ partnership, this is a term which Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi used to refer to the movement of people, ideas, goods and services from India to the UK and back. The diaspora’s ability to speak the language can also help businesses, that are not necessarily South Asian, take advantage of opportunities in the subcontinent.
