Past Event: Thursday, June 10, 2021

With the recent announcement of an Enhanced Trade Partnership, the relationship between the UK and India is stronger than ever, with huge potential to increase trade and investment activity.

India is already one of the top investors in the UK, with Indian companies in the UK employing over 116,000 people. Drawing from CII and Grant Thornton’s India meets Britain Tracker 2021 report, this webinar will provide insight into the evolving scale, business activities, locations and performance of the Indian-owned companies who are making the biggest impact in the UK.
We will hear from some of the fantastic Indian businesses who are part of this report about the exciting and innovative work they are doing in the UK.

Join us on 10 June as we explore opportunities to build stronger investment links between India, Leeds City Region, and the wider Northern Powerhouse.
