India has an international business-friendly investment policy, with 100% FDI in a host of sectors such as healthcare, pharma, textile, education, single brand retail trade, infrastructure, and much more. Even sectors such as defence and aerospace which were mostly state-controlled till recently have been opened systematically. FDI up to 74% has been allowed in the category, as India is vying to become one of the major defence producers in the world.
Add to that the multiple routes for mergers and acquisitions (M&As) between Indian and foreign entities, and we have a recipe ready to attract FDI and international M&As in the country. Besides, India features strongly on the radar of individual businesses, traders, start-ups, etc. as well. Most trade promotion agencies continue to scout opportunities in the Indian market stemming from its strong growth potential, attractive demographic dividend, and large market size.
India’s attractiveness as a sought-after investment destination also necessitates the need for a comprehensive India market entry strategy for businesses to successfully enter, grow, and scale-up in the Indian market.
We look at a robust 9-step proprietary strategy by The India Watch to enable global enterprises to enter the Indian market and establish operations over here in an efficient and effective manner. Also, as we will discuss later in greater detail, India market entry services, exclusively tailor-made for your business, can play a big role to this effect.
