Dr Frank-Jürgen Richter, Chairman, Horasis, said: 'The Global India Business Meeting is the foremost annual gathering of Indian business leaders and their global counterparts. Informed by the outcomes of the national elections, the meeting will engage participants to provide a holistic and timely perspective on the future direction for India. Taking place as part of the International Festival for Business, the event will help define India’s international growth agenda, using the UK as a springboard for new business deals.'
Max Steinberg CBE, Chair of IFB 2014, said: 'The Global India Business Meeting will provide a unique opportunity for British business to forge important and lasting connections with a key global partner. India is a major UK export market and the Horasis meeting will be a pivotal event to discuss how the trade and export relationship between the two countries can evolve. We look forward to welcoming some of India’s most prominent business leaders to Liverpool next year.'
With the UK aiming to increase its trade links with India, IFB2014 will enable the relationship to grow, further boosting these already strong bilateral ties. The Festival will also provide the opportunity for small businesses to enter the Indian market, paving the way for the development of new global business relationships.
