The Socio-Economic Impact of UK companies in India: Launch Event
Given the commitment of UK businesses towards the Indian market, the UKIBC’s ‘Socio-Economic Impact Initiative’ aims to showcase UK businesses contribution in the space and map it against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for enhanced contribution towards SDG initiatives of the Government of India.
The launch was hosted by the British High Commissioner, Sir Dominic Asquith, at his residence, and was graced by Ms Sanyukta Samaddar, Advisor, Niti Aayog, along with Mr Richard Heald, Group CEO, UKIBC, and Ms Shoko Noda, UNDP Resident Representative in India.
A “walkthrough” exhibition showcased the work carried out by the UK businesses in India. The exhibition featured both a high-level analysis into the breadth and depth of existing UK business and university impact in India and promoted select case studies, namely British Telecom, JCB, Cairn Energy, Diageo, GSK, HSBC, Standard Chartered, and UNDP.
