Investing in the UK: Opportunities in a post COVID-19 world

Dear Valued Stakeholder,

As UK and Indian businesses come to terms with the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and start planning for the future, trade and economic relations between the UK and India has become more important than ever before. India is one of the key inward investors in the UK and according to the latest Grant Thornton ‘India meets Britain tracker’ report developed in collaboration with the Confederation of Indian Industry, Indian companies continue to invest, grow and expand in the UK despite the various challenges.

To build on the findings of the Tracker report, Grant Thornton in collaboration with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT), invite you to an engaging webinar on “Investing in the UK – opportunities in a post COVID-19 world”. Our distinguished speakers and panellists will focus on the relationship between the two countries and share insights on policies and future prospects across key sectors and regions.
