Doing Business

India is a large and diverse country. There is no magic formula with which you can immediately do business successfully. That is why you will find useful tips for doing business in India here and on the website of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency. You can also read how the Dutch embassy and other Dutch representations in India can help you further.

Opportunities for Business

India offers more and more opportunities for entrepreneurs. The steady economic growth, an extensive market for consumer goods and substantial investments in infrastructure, health care and agriculture provide opportunities for the Dutch business community.

Experiences of Dutch companies

Successful Dutch companies share their experiences: they explain what they do in India and which factors contributed to their success. They also provide useful advice to newcomers on this promising market.

Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Sustainable and responsible partnership and the Sustainable Development Goals are high on our agenda in India, especially in doing business. Through the INDUS Forum, the Netherlands and India try to make the trade and investments between both countries sustainable and inclusive. Through this forum, we connect relevant parties with each other to create sustainable change and cooperation. These stakeholders are, among others, companies, NGOs and knowledge institutions.
