From theory to practice
India cannot be explained but has to be experienced – is what one hears often. The same can be said of doing business in India. There is no substitute for the experience of a team that has lived here for several years and is there to help you avoid the traps into which many a company has fallen, including some very global ones.
Today more than 700 French companies and subsidiaries are established in India, representing a total investment of more than 17 billion Euros. This investment covers all the sectors for which France’s know-how is globally recognized. Canada not wishing to be outdone, wishes to triple its business with India to reach 15 billion dollars by 2015.
Even though there is huge market potential, it remains important to measure over time and in financial terms, your ability to invest in the emerging countries of the Indian subcontinent with all the risks that such economies engender.
But the possibilities are limitless in this part of the world and the best testimony to that is probably the increasing number of French entrepreneurs who have invested their own capital to develop a business in the country. There are more than 150 of them currently and form a strong and dynamic network with a keen understanding of their respective areas of business.
