LONDON: Business links between Northern Ireland and India are set to be strengthened following the launch of a major campaign focusing on building trade, technology transfer and investment between the regions.

British High Commissioner to India Michael Arthur was in Belfast to launch "Opportunity India", an initiative backed by Invest Northern Ireland (Invest NI).

The campaign is being facilitated by Northern Ireland hotelier and property developer Lord Daljit Rana, who is president of the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and the UK's only Honorary Consul for India.

A number of events have already been planned by Invest NI to highlight trade opportunities with India and which promote Northern Ireland as the best European location for India's fast developing technology sector.

These include a seminar in Belfast next month by Manpreet Vohra, commercial counsellor at the Indian High Commission in London, and Manoj Ladwa of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

There will also be a major trade mission leaving Northern Ireland for Mumbai for a week from October 30 to November 5 while local companies will also have a key present at IT.Com in Bangalore in November and at the NASSCOM event in Mumbai next February.

Arthur said there were "vast opportunities" for Northern Ireland companies in India.

"I'm confident Invest NI's focus on India will enable companies to explore a marketplace that is being shaped by the strength of India's fast growing IT sector and also by the Indian government's drive to improve its roads, airports, ports, transportation and telecommunications infrastructure, " he said.
