Opportunity in India - June 2007

India is an obvious "potential" market for any UK company considering exports. But it is important that it is seen as a very sophisticated market. It has a middle class of 300 million people who want access to all the products common to the UK High Street.  They may not yet have the purchasing power to buy at UK prices, but they do have the capability to enter into partnerships to produce locally at local prices. 

This report highlights on the opportunities and expressed need in Indian Economy for all these trade clusters:

Food and Drink
Transport Technologies (aviation, automotive, infrastructure)
Medical Technologies (biotech & pharmaceuticals; healthcare)
Business Professional Services (education & training, insurance, tariffs)
Tourism and Leisure (heritage & restoration, travel and tourism)
Information Communication Technologies (telecom)
Screen, Image and Sound (media)
The above highlights serve to illustrate the fact that India is ready to do business in almost every sector. It is a market, which is set to continuing growing for at least another 30 years as a result of its own demography.

Agri-Business (including food & drink) - June 2006

Agriculture sector provides 25% of GDP, 64% employment, but accounts only 18% to India's total exports. Contribution of agricultural research to total productivity growth is as high as 48 per cent. 30% of India's agriculture relies on traditional methods of farming, thus the potential for organic produce exports to the developed countries is very high. India wants to increase its share in the rapidly growing global food trade to 2% by 2015. The government is keen on preparing a comprehensive food processing policy. The aim being to tap the huge potential arising from India's huge production of vegetables, fruits, food-grain, milk, fish and poultry.
