Supporting UK Composites

India-UK Tech Summit

By 2025 India’s manufacturing sector will be worth over £0.5 trillion ranking it in the top 3 manufacturing destinations in the world. It will also be well on the way to being the world’s largest economy.

At the same time the UK already employs approximately 1.3million people in 29,000 advanced engineering companies, contributing almost £0.5 trillion or 27% of the UK’s GDP. The UK and India already share a special relationship in manufacturing and engineering and this mission is designed to help UK companies explore India’s vast opportunities.

The newly formed Department for International Trade (DIT) in partnership with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) are coming together for the India-UK TECH Summit, offering UK companies the chance to capitalise on the vast opportunities presented by India-UK collaboration.
