Dear Members and Friends

Everyone knows businesses and investors can’t ignore India because it is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Rising affluence means increasing domestic consumption which, in turn, increases opportunities for businesses of all kinds.

The Government of India has committed to making the country a USD 5 Trillion economy by 2024 – 2025 with foreign investment a key growth driver.

But India is not the easiest place for foreign companies either to understand market complexities or operate in. That’s why your Chamber is collaborating with your fellow member ICICI Bank to present a talk on “The Indian Economy: Opportunities and The Way Forward” on 17 January 2020. Sign up and learn about macro-economic trends, key growth sectors and the focus states in India from people who know India and can help you navigate it.

Seats are limited so do register soon.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
