Welcome to all Members and visitors to BBG Chennai web-site!
We are in middle of 2016 as BBG Chennai takes delegation to Liverpool taking part in the International Festival of Business 2016 commencing 13th June to 1st July. This is biggest trade and business event in world this year. Our delegation will have 15 /18 companies and have our Deputy High Commissioner, Bharat Joshi speaking at Seminar; "South India Business in Liverpool" to encourage UK companies to consider South India as business destination. Our second objective is to get Indian companies to trade and invest in UK. India already has close to 1000 Indian companies set-up and doing business in UK and this is on the increase. We would expect that IFB2016 will see greater traction in UK-India business activity. This will also cover education
and healthcare and innovation.
During this Festival, one of the most critical events will take place on 23rd June - the UK referendum on whether to stay in the EU or to leave the EU. Issues are being hotly debated on both sides and both sides have strong arguments for Remain/ Leave . Two main factors are UK being out with Euro-currency and not part of Shengen travel zone. UK may be better protected on it's own against terrorism with better security it has. Keeping out immigrants and other East Europeans is an objective for the Brexit campaign. Common sense indicates trade will continue as Europeans want to sell cars and wine into UK while UK exports quality goods at better prices than EU countries. There will continue to be many more factors small and big but in the end on 23rd the great British people will have their say Appreciate your visit to bbgchennai.org
