Why India?

According to the United Nations, the Indian economy is projected to grow by 7.7 percent in fiscal year 2017, which is 1.2 percent higher than China. This optimistic outlook was also shared by the World Economic Forum, which sees India as a very friendly destination for investment in a world full of uncertainties.

The growth is going to be driven because of reforms being implemented by the government, including the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill, monetary easing, infrastructure investments, and public-private partnerships. In addition to these reforms, India is also experiencing a robust private consumption from the population at large as well as a growing middle class in the second most populated country in the world.

With a population of almost 1.3 billion people, the middle class is going to number in the hundreds of millions. This presents great opportunities not only for local companies, but also international businesses looking to capitalize on the millions of consumers with disposable incomes. With India virtual toll free numbers, it makes it much easier to communicate with the local population throughout the 29 states and 7 union territories.
