India's economy is one of the fastest growing in the world. Historically and currently it is an important market for UK business, worth £8bn annually. In fact, it is the UK's second largest export market. Protecting your IP is crucial when exporting and manufacturing products or licensing IP in India. UK business is well-positioned to engage in this export and investment market and learning more about India's IP environment is a plus.
