It’s been 60 years since India had its “tryst with destiny”. Today, India’s economic growth is second only to China’s. Many analysts predict that if current trends continue, India will be the world’s third largest economy by 2020. Despite India’s immense potential as a trade and investment partner for the UK, only a small fraction of UK total exports go to India. To increase trade with India, the UK must leverage its many natural advantages: a shared history; common language; similar legal and accounting systems; 1.1 million people of Indian origin living in the UK.
