India: a market with 1.2 billion people
India is easily overlooked when searching for international business opportunities, but the country has an enormous population and a developing middle class that will get more spending power year by year. Also the government is willing to do many investments in the infrastructure and in new technologies.
How to find a good business partner?
The first question for export to India is where you want to start: in Delhi, the government center, big cities like Mumbai or Calcutta, or IT outsourcing hotspots like Bangalore? For specific products, smaller cities or regions may also be a starting point.
Working with local agents or distributors is a prerequisite in India. The selection of the right ones is another story. A local intermediary will help you with this.
