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 this, with a growing workforce, India offers immense potential for Swedish businesses to invest, grow, and diversify.

During the seminar, we will provide you with 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.

Following the seminar, you will have ample opportunity to engage with us 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.
