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:

Tourism and Leisure (heritage & restoration, travel and tourism)
Transport Technologies (aviation, automotive, infrastructure)
Medical Technologies (biotech & pharmaceuticals; healthcare)
Business Professional Services (education & training, insurance, tariffs)
Food and Drink
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.

Sports and Leisure Infrastructure Sector Review - February 2006

In the sports sector in India, there is a very clear demarcation of responsibility to develop sports between the following organisations:
The Central Government: The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports prepares sports policy and funds sports activity countrywide through the Sports Authority of India (SAI).
The SAI is responsible for sports infrastructure and provides training to players.
The Federation/Associations of different sports are responsible for creating awareness, giving exposure to new players, providing training, selecting players, marketing and organising championships and for the overall development of sports
The role of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) is to help participation in the Asian Games, Commonwealth and Olympic games.
In preparation for the 2010 Commonwealth Games much work needs to be done upgrading stadia and creating new infrastructure for success.  Opportunity currently exists in feasibility, master planning, finance and cost control, consultancy, hi-tech equipment and designs for the development of various sports facilities.
