New Delhi, Oct 10 (ANI): UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) in India is organising the “Great Tech Week” to bring together leading British and Indian information and communication technology companies across five Indian cities from 12 to 16 October 2015.
The events will link Indian ICT companies looking for international partners with their British counterparts, presenting the UK’s expertise and elaborating they can help Indian companies take their business global by using the UK as a base.
The multicity programme will kick off in Hyderabad followed by Mumbai, Bengaluru, New Delhi and Trivandrum.
John Kat, UKTI’s sector specialist said, “The Technology sector is one of the UK’s largest wealth creators. It has been one of the fastest-growing sectors over the past decade and plays a vital role for every other industrial sector. The UK tech sector contributes 8% to UK GVA and employs 1.2 million people. A significant amount of that innovation is being pioneered in the UK.
Great Tech Week will put a spotlight on the UK technology sector and help Indian companies unlock why the UK is the best place to act as a springboard to global markets” she added.
Experts from the British High Commission’s Science and Innovation teams will also showcase the UK’s successful innovation and incubation models with the aim of encouraging innovation collaboration and new investments from Indian start-ups to the UK.
“The UK’s software and IT services market is one of the largest in Western Europe, valued at £58 billion per year. The UK is renowned for its strength in software development across a wide range of application areas including automotive, financial services, retail and logistics” added John Kat.
The Indian companies will also get an opportunity to meet visa experts and immigration solicitors who can advise companies considering setting-up in the UK. (ANI)
