The first UK India Business Centre was officially opened this week in Gurgaon, near Delhi.
The centre, which was opened by UK Trade and Investment Minister, Lord Green, is designed to be a home-away-from-home for UK SMEs seeking to enter or expand in India.
Run by the UK India Business Council (UKIBC), the centre will provide a range of affordable market-entry services to businesses in sectors such as automotive industry, including venue hire and market research.
Lord Green said, “The UK India Business Centre will help UK small- and medium-sized businesses work closer with more established British businesses in India, and provide them with the support needed to capitalise on the huge potential of the Indian market. The network of centres across India will also drive a step change in the number of UK companies doing business in India contributing to prosperity in both countries.”
UKIBC has also announced plans for a second centre in Bangalore, which will open in 2014.
