Scotland expects increased business tie-ups with India, invite SMEs for investment

With over 100 Scottish firms forging business partnerships with Indian companies last year, a Scottish governmental agency, Scottish Development International (SDI) on Thursday said it is expecting a surge of 30 percent in the number of such collaborations in the 2013-14 fiscal.

 

SDI is the international economic development arm of the Scottish Government, which set up its base in India in 2001 with offices in New Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad.

 

Rooma Kumar Bassi, Director-north and east India, SDI said the growth in the business partnerships will result in increase in the bilateral trade which is expected to grow by 15-20 percent in the next few years.

 

The SDI is scouting for business opportunities with India as it looks for investment in sectors like information technology, energy, education, life science, heavy engineering among others.

 

The SDI is expecting a growth in Indian investment in the country which currently stands at $1 billion with the presence of names like Tata Steel, Wipro, Usha Martin etc.

 

“While there is presence of big Indian companies, we welcome small and medium enterprises to invest in Scotland where they can get incentives like regional selective assistance, research and development (R&D) funding and concession on corporate tax provided to foreign investors in selected areas,” added Bassi.

 

The SDI is also slated to talk to the West Bengal government regarding investment in the state.
