There are several opportunities for foreign direct investments. While India has emerged as a prominent investor in the UK, the ‘Make in India’ call – invites investors from the UK both, of Indian origin and others, to further increase their economic interests in India’s manufacturing, services and infrastructure sectors – and promises to deliver on improving investment environment in India.
The publication on ‘Opportunities for Economic Engagement for Indian Diaspora in the United Kingdom’ is an endeavour of the Overseas Indian Facilitation Centre (OIFC) to enable prospective inward investments in India by providing information and liaison support to new and existing investor who may be interested in setting up new ventures in India or investing through other indirect modes.
The OIFC was set up by the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs’ (MOIA) in 2007, in partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), and provides facilitation services to the Overseas Indians, especially assisting them in deepening their economic and intellectual engagement with India.
