“A hectic week visiting existing and potential new clients based in India. The brief trip involved meetings in Mumbai and Delhi.
In Mumbai there was a formal launch of a website for a new exchange within a “trade zone”. This exchange plans to open domestic Indian markets to international firms, and allow firms based in India to trade international markets rather than having to establish subsidiaries in areas such as Dubai or Singapore.
I was privileged to be invited by the Bombay Stock Exchange to the launch of their initiative. I also met the Minister for Finance who opened the website and expressed the commitment of the Prime Minister of India and his Government, to making a success of this new business zone.
This trip is part of our continuing efforts and desire to expand our international presence in terms of our client base and markets available.
India offers some exciting opportunities and I look forward to my return trip in 2017 to see how the above is progressing.”
