India and the Northern Powerhouse
India is a key market when it comes to trade and will become even more important once the United Kingdom leaves the European Union Trade as it currently stands trade is around £5bn per year around two thirds of that is Indian exports to the United Kingdom and around one third of that is UK exports to India.
The Federation of Asian Business (members are YABA, AB Connexions and NWABA) will be a key element in Britain’s attempts to establish a ‘living bridge’ partnership, this is a term which Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi used to refer to the movement of people, ideas, goods and services from India to the UK and back. The diaspora’s ability to speak the language can also help businesses, that are not necessarily South Asian, take advantage of opportunities in the subcontinent.
ABC is delighted to announce the Chief Minister of Haryana Manohar Lal and a senior civil service and private sector delegation have arranged to meet and further develop bi-lateral trade links.
The Chair of the Federation of Asian Business Ammar Mirza CBE is hosting a roundtable session with members of FAB and local leaders in Leeds on Monday 14th May 2018. In direct response to the work led by Sharon Jandu and the most recent trade visit to Chandigar, Haryana is keen to develop meaningful and sustainable relationships through FAB with UK trade and industry.
