The Business Support to the EU-India Policy Dialogues supports the implementation of the new EU strategy on India, which was adopted in December 2018. The project strives to increase business involvement in strategic areas of bilateral cooperation in order to reinforce the already strong partnership between the European Union and India. These key areas are derived from on-going policy dialogues between the EU and India, such as Environment, Energy, Climate, ICT and Urbanisation and hold relevant/ real-time opportunities for EU businesses interested in entering the Indian market.

Launched in February 2019, the project is led by GFA Consulting Group GmbH (Hamburg, Germany) in consortium with EBTC – European Business and Technology Centre (New Delhi, India), implementation partner India and EUROCHAMBRES (Brussels, Belgium), implementation partner Europe.

The Project ‘Business Support to the EU-India Policy Dialogues’ lies squarely in the Business-Policy nexus, making policy makers benefit from businesses and vice versa. The Project can support hands on in making EU-India collaborations work, identify and address the multitude of challenges, and make business and policy efforts go hand in hand to the benefit of both EU and India.
