    Un proverbe indien annonce que “Tout européen qui vient en Inde acquiert la patience s’il n’en a pas et la perd s’il en a.”. Pas étonnant alors que faire des affaires en Inde soit si compliqué pour les Occidentaux. Entre un accent anglais on ne peut plus éloigné du posh britannique, un dodelinement de la tête qui ne signifie ni oui ni non et une conception erratique du temps, la communication est bien plus ardue qu’il n’y paraît.

    Pourtant, depuis l’époque des grandes découvertes, l’Inde n’a jamais été autant attractive qu’aujourd’hui. Quand les Conquistadors espagnols s’emparaient des Amériques, ils s’imaginaient à l’origine avoir atteint les Indes, ses épices et son or. Aujourd’hui, les investisseurs notent une croissance supérieure à 7% et des classes moyennes en plein essor. Ils attendent des retours sur investissement sans commune mesure avec ceux des pays industrialisés. L’Inde est devenue le nouvel Eldorado. Les réussites d’Airbus, de Cadbury ou de Thales en sont de parfaits symboles. Et les PME ne sont pas en reste. Des entreprises françaises comme ATC Tannery Chemicals (produits chimiques pour la tannerie), Lorina (limonade) ou Ultraconfidentiel (création de meubles et de décoration d’intérieur) ont réussi avec succès à s’implanter dans la péninsule.

    Le succès des entreprises de l’hexagone est le fruit de démarches longues et rigoureuses. Aux antipodes des missions vers l’inconnu des explorateurs, les organisations françaises qui réussissent sont celles qui ont savamment et méthodiquement planifié leurs projets. En effet, l’Inde est un relai de croissance incroyable pour les entreprises françaises. Son essor de long terme et ses bases économiques solides en font un vivier remarquable. Cependant, il s’agit d’un projet de longue haleine à mener avec des partenaires dignes de confiance.

    Indien als Investmentstandort! Hört sich für die meisten deutschen Unternehmer nach einem Risiko reichen Abenteuer in einem fremden Land an. Lohnt es sich wirklich nach Indien zu kommen?
    Indien ist ein Land was für seine große Bevölkerung bekannt ist und jeder spricht davon, dass hier ein Markt mit großen Erwartungen ist, aber ist dort auch ein Markt für mein Unternehmen?
    Die Frage ist, wie groß ist das Risiko für ein Investment in Indien und werden die Menschen hier auch wirklich mein Produkt kaufen oder meine Dienstleistung in Anspruch nehmen?
    Die Erfahrungen der letzten Jahre haben gezeigt, dass Indien ein großer Erfolg für viele Unternehmen ist. Deutsche Unternehmen sind zahlreich in Indien vertreten, jeder kennt hier Unternehmen wie VW, BMW, Mercedes (Daimler), ThyssenKrupp, ZF, zudem ist auch der deutsche Mittelstand sehr stark und erfolgreich in Indien vertreten.
    Der Indische Markt ist kein Markt für das schnelle Geld, man muss Geduld mitbringen. Wenn man jedoch diese Geduld mitbringt, kann dieser Markt ein sehr erfolgreiches Abenteuer werden. Wenn man mit einer guten Strategie, die sich vor Ort weiter entwickeln wird, nach Indien kommt und bereit ist sich an den indischen Markt anzupassen, steht dem Erfolg in Indien nichts mehr im Wege.

    RELAZIONI BILATERALI: INDIA- ITALIA 

    India e Italia sono culle di antichissime civiltà, che interagiscono e commerciano tra loro da circa 2000 anni. Da sempre, infatti, gli audaci mercanti e i famosi scrittori hanno raccontato e hanno scritto in merito alle meraviglie e al fascino magnetico che il continente Indiano esercita, con i suoi colori e il suo misticismo.

    Nonostante si tratti di due realtà uniche e profondamente differenti, i due paesi sono i custodi di un patrimonio culturale incredibilmente ricco e per certi versi, simile.

    Per cominciare la lingua: latino e sanscrito condividono lo stesso ceppo di origine, quello indoeuropeo. Inoltre, entrambi i Paesi hanno da sempre coltivato le arti, quali l’architettura, la letteratura, il cinema e la poesia.

    Se in Italia si percepisce tutto il fascino dei borghi medievali e delle chiese, ci si stupisce di fronte alla magnificenza del Colosseo e ci si rilassa gustando un espresso, in India si è attratti dal magnetismo dei templi Indù, si è colpiti dall’imponenza del Taj Mahal e si è rinfrancati da un buon chai.

    Inoltre, ogni stato dell’India custodisce i proprio dialetti e le proprie tradizioni culinarie, proprio come le differenti e variopinte regioni d’Italia.

    Nonostante le differenze esistano e possano spesso essere incomprensibili, questi due paesi possono crescere insieme, con lo sguardo sempre rivolto al futuro e teso alla ricerca costante di ciò che può unirli.

    RAPPORTI ECONOMICI

    • All’interno dell’Unione Europea, l’Italia rappresenta il quinto partner commerciale dell’India.
    • L’Italia è il 14esimo maggior investitore estero per il territorio indiano.
    • Il commercio bilaterale Indo-Italiano sta continuamente crescendo, , a causa della crisi finanziaria e delle sue ripercussioni. In ogni modo, nel 2014 si è registrata una crescita positiva del 3.65%, confermata nel 2015 con un ulteriore aumento del 2.12%.
    • Le esportazioni Indiane in Italia sono state di 08 milioni di euro nel 2015, mentre le esportazioni dall’Italia verso l’India di 3350.75 milioni di euro nello stesso anno.
    • I principali settori in India ad attrarre investimenti dall’Italia sono il settore automobilistico, metallurgico, tessile, della trasformazione dei prodotti alimentari, della fabbricazione di componenti e macchine automatiche.
    • Nel 2016 erano presenti più di 500 aziende italiane sul suolo indiano di cui una grande percentuale rappresentata da piccole-medie imprese, sempre più interessate a cominciare attività di business in India.

    L’India offre ampie possibilità agli investitori stranieri, grazie al rapido sviluppo del mercato domestico, alla crescita della classe media e ad una politica favorevole nei confronti degli investimenti stranieri.

    BILATERAL RELATIONS: INDIA-JAPAN

    The year 2012 marked the 60th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between Japan and India. During the visit of Prime Minister Modi to Japan in November 2016, the two Prime Ministers agreed to mark the year 2017 as a year of Japan-India friendly exchanges to further enhance people-to-people exchanges between Japan and India.

    ECONOMIC RELATIONS

    Economic relations between India and Japan have vast potential for growth, given the obvious complementarities that exist between the two Asian economies. Japan's interest in India is increasing due to variety of reasons including India's huge and growing market and its resources, especially the human resources. The signing of the historic India-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) and its implementation from August 2011 has accelerated economic and commercial relations between the two countries. During the visit of Prime Minister Modi to Japan in September 2014, PM Shinzo Abe pledged $35 billion in investment in India's public and private sectors over the next five years. The two countries also set a target of doubling Japanese FDI and the number of Japanese firms in India by the year 2019.
    2. Bilateral trade between the two countries more than doubled between 2006-07 and 2012-13. However, total trade has come down to $ 14.51 billion in 2015-16 from a peak of $ 18.5 billion in 2012-13. In 2015-16, India's exports to Japan were $ 4.66 billion while imports were $ 9.85 billion. The negative or slow growth in trade with Japan is a matter of concern for India in view of the fact that there is high potential for faster progress on goods and services trade. The share of India-Japan bilateral trade in Japan's total trade has been hovering around 1 per cent but it is in the range of 2.2 to 2.5 per cent of India's total trade.

    BILATERAL RELATIONS: INDIA-SPAIN

    Relations between India and Spain have been cordial since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1956. A Mission headed by a Cd'A opened in Madrid in 1958. The first resident Ambassador of India was appointed in 1965.

    ECONOMIC RELATIONS

    Bilateral Trade between India and Spain in 2015 (January to May) stood at around $ 3 billion; Spain's exports to India during the given period stood at $ 1.0 billion and India´s exports to Spain stood at $ 2.2 billion. Spain is India's 7th largest trading partner in the European Union. Given the infrastructure push that is planned in India in the areas of power, roads, ports, airports, telecom and urban infrastructure, especially as part of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor and the Make in India campaign, the possibilities for cooperation are immense. India, on the other hand, could offer Spain quality options in the fields of IT and services, pharmaceuticals (particularly generics) and the chemicals sector.

    Spain is the 12th largest investor in India with $1.8 billion in FDI, mostly in infrastructure (Isolux Corsan, Grupo San Jose), renewable energy (Gamesa), auto components (Gestamp), water desalination (Abengoa) and single brand retail (Inditex – Zara/Mango) A total of around 200 Spanish companies have subsidiaries, joint ventures, projects or liaison offices and purchase offices in India. There are over 30 Indian companies in Spain, the most significant ones being in the areas of IT (TCS, Tech Mahindra), energy (Avantha) and automobiles (Mahindra). The stock of Indian investment in Spain is approximately 800 million euros.

    India offers huge opportunities for foreign investors thanks to its domestic market and growing middle class, its leading position in the IT or pharmaceutical industries, the development of its infrastructure and its foreign investment friendly policy.

    BILATERAL RELATIONS: INDIA-UAE

    The UAE’s economic, political and cultural links with India, which date back to more than a century ago, are matured and multi-dimensional. Bilateral trade has been steadily growing over the years and people-to-people contacts are constantly on the increase. Tourists from both sides are visiting for leisure and pleasure, and more and more UAE nationals are availing of healthcare and tourism facilities in India.

    ECONOMIC RELATIONS

    In 2008-13, India emerged as one of the biggest trade partner of the UAE with bilateral trade between the two countries exceeding US$75 billion. UAE and India are one of each other's largest trading partners. The trade totals over $75 billion.

    An extensive framework of agreements, including economic, defence, security, law enforcement, culture, consular and people-to-people contacts constitute solid bedrock for elevating bilateral cooperation across the full spectrum of our relationship.

    Today, as India accelerates economic reforms and improves its investment and business environment, and UAE becomes an increasingly advanced and diversified economy, the two countries have the potential to build a transformative economic partnership, not only for sustained prosperity of their two countries, but to also advance progress in the region and help realise the vision of an Asian Century.

    Yet, their common vision of progress and prosperity faces challenges from many shared threats to peace, stability and security in the region. A shared endeavour to address these challenges, based on common ideals and convergent interests, is vital for the future of the two countries and their region.

    UAE is at the heart of the Persian Gulf and West Asia region and its major economic hub. India, with seven million citizens in the Persian Gulf area, also has major energy, trade and investment interests in the region. The two nations also share a commitment to openness, peaceful coexistence and social harmony that are based on their cultural traditions, spiritual values and shared heritage. UAE is a shining example of a multi-cultural society. India is a nation of unparalleled diversity, religious pluralism and a composite culture.
