India is the second largest country in the world by population, the world’s largest democracy and the largest English speaking nation in the world.
Recording an annual average growth rate of 7.5% from 2004 to 2013, India’s economy is now growing faster than China’s. The country’s economy is set to exceed the size of the UK economy in the next few years and is forecast to be the 7th largest economy in the world by 2019.
India’s new government is committed to pursue economic growth and initiatives including “Make in India”, “Digital India,” “Skill India” and “Smart Cities” have created a positive business environment with a number of business growth opportunities.
India’s growth is largely driven by domestic demand, fuelled by a rapidly growing middle class.
