The UK retail sector is among the most advanced in the world, which means opportunities to export UK expertise to emerging markets. The newly liberalised Indian market is a prime example, having been recognised as the world’s leading destination for retail investment by AT Kearney’s Global Retail Development Index. The Indian economy is growing by 8 per cent a year, its stock market has risen by nearly 40 per cent in 2005, and foreign investors are flooding in. Retail is India’s largest industry accounting for over 10 per cent of the country’s GDP. Modern retail is already thriving in India with multi-storey malls offering shopping, entertainment and food under one roof. A large, young, urban population with disposable income is driving demand. Seeing the opportunities, major players in India and overseas are entering the market.

The ‘Retail Opportunities in India Conference’ provides the up-to-date view direct from India. The conference is aimed at companies in the retail industry considering entry into the retail market in India.
