Making Money in India

The Indian Community Centre Association (ICCA), Nottingham
Tue 8th Sep 2009, 17:15 to 20:00

This event has finished.

India’s economy is one of the fastest expanding in the world and, despite the global downturn, it is still expected to grow by at least 6% this year. The country has a middle class population of 300 million, representing a powerful consumer market with a rapidly increasing disposable income. The UK has strong ties with India and UK companies are well positioned to take advantage of this growing export and investment market.


If you would like to learn more about the vast potential of the emerging cities of India or how you could maximise on the investment opportunities this market offers, then join emita in partnership with East Midlands India Business Bureau (EMIBB) for an evening focused on ‘Making Money in India’.


The evening will be opened by Deepak Lalwani from Astaire & Partners Ltd, who will be reviewing the Indian financial markets; how they are performing and the investment opportunities available. There will also be the chance to hear from Kevin McCole, UK India Business Council, on how to take advantage of the opportunities created by the rapid growth of India’s seven emerging cities, followed by advice from Jeet Jandu, UKTI, on how to capitalise on India’s fiscal stimulus plan. Finally Gleeds, management and construction consultants, will provide tips and advice based on their experiences of successfully investing in the market through a merger with an established Indian partner, before the evening is brought to a close with a panel discussion.
