Path to Asia: Opportunities for Doing Business in India 2021
Webinar | April 07, 2021 | 2:30 PM India Time / 10:00 AM UK Time
The size of India’s economy, now the world’s sixth largest, makes it an attractive market for UK based businesses.
Post Brexit, both India and the UK are keen to enter into a Free Trade Agreement, to further cement and enhance economic ties between the two countries. As a precursor to this, recently, both countries signed an ‘Enhanced Trade Partnership’ to deepen the economic engagement between the two countries. India-UK ties are expected to touch a new high post Brexit and post COVID-19.
India’s economy is set to bounce back strongly post COVID-19. Nomura expects India to be the fastest growing Asian economy in 2021 – at 9.9 percent.
This comes in the backdrop of a number of initiatives taken by the government of India in recent years to attract foreign investment and improve ease of doing business in the country – including introduction of major incentive schemes, reduction of corporate tax rates, simplification of entry norms, and digitization of existing legal regime, among various other regulatory reforms and measures.
On April 7, 2021, Rohit Kapur, India Managing Director at Dezan Shira & Associates will share updates on India’s improving business environment and increasing scope of opportunities it offers to UK investors.
During the webinar, Rohit will speak on the following topics:
- Indian Market overview
- COVID-19 updates – response to the pandemic and vaccine updates
- India’s latest FDI policy
- Doing Business with Indians
- Ease of doing business in India
- India-UK trade scenario
