What are the Opportunities?
India’s economy is one of the fastest expanding in the world, with a rapidly expanding consumer class. The UK has strong ties with India, and UK companies are well positioned to take advantage of this growing export and investment market.
Liberalisation of the economy continues apace, with trade barriers largely removed and the peak tariff down from 350% in 1991 to 20% in 2005. Privatisation programmes are gradually reducing the still-significant role of the public sector in the production and consumption of goods.
There are 16 broad sectors in which proactive UK companies can increase their profitability and international competitiveness:
Biotechnology and pharmaceuticals
Creative and media
Education, skills and leisure
Financial and legal services
Healthcare and medical
Oil and gas
