India Desk

India continues to experience a climate of pioneering and optimism. With the “Make in India” campaign, the Indian government wishes to attract foreign investors to the country and create an upturn in the Indian economy. The country is rapidly opening up its markets to foreign investors, offering them attractive conditions and subsidy programs. Combined with a campaign to simplify its bureaucracy, the largest democracy in the world is facilitating market entry for European investors.
