India and the Northern Powerhouse

We returned this month from our second trip of the year to India as part of the Federation of Asian Business trade mission. Since our successful visit earlier this year, we had been further developing trade and civic links with the state of Karnataka, Delhi and Punjab and are proud to be representing the Northern Powerhouse to further enhance these opportunities.

We are now establishing a number of partnerships and working with a range of organisations across the North of England to take forward the substantive opportunities. You can read all about the visit here  and here. Simon Collingwood from Quatro PR published an excellent opinion piece which can be accessed here.
