Time for India

04 september 2023

India is expected to become the world’s fastest growing large economy this year and is projected to become the third largest by 2030. With demographics that supports a fast growing workforce, India offers immense potential for Swedish businesses to invest, grow, and diversify.  

You are invited to attend a Time for India breakfast seminar at the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce on 4 September 2023. During the seminar, we will give you a taste of India’s dynamic business environment, investment prospects, and growth potential. Drawing from the recent Business Climate Survey conducted amongst Swedish companies already established in India, you will gain insights into the expanding collaboration between India and Sweden, as well as the bilateral agreements within the innovation landscape. Additionally, we will provide an update on the ongoing discussions surrounding the Free Trade Agreement between the EU and India.  

The event is hosted by the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and organised by Team Sweden – comprising the Embassy of Sweden in New Delhi, the Consulate General in Mumbai, Business Sweden, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in India, Sweden India Business Council, Invest India, and the Embassy of India in Stockholm.  

Following the seminar, you will have ample opportunity to engage with the speakers and address any specific inquiries you may have regarding India, your market entry strategy, and how your company can become an integral part of the growing India-Sweden business community.
