India's explosive economic growth, especially in its consumer market, has vaulted it into the ranks of the world's fastest growing nations. Its GDP is expected to reach US$ 5 trillion by FY25 and achieve upper-middle income status on the back of digitization, globalization, favorable demographics, and reforms.
The South Asian country is also a global agricultural powerhouse. It is the world's largest producer of milk, pulses and spices, has the world's largest cattle herd, as well as the largest area under wheat, rice and cotton. The Indian food industry is poised for huge growth and has immense potential for value addition, particularly within the food processing industry.
The Chamber, with the support of the Consulate General of India in Hong Kong, has organized a webinar on 30 July to explore the trade and investment opportunities that the country offers. Members will not only learn about India's business environment and how they can enter this immense market, but also learn more about the quality agricultural and food products that India can export to the world, and how to navigate the country's newly imposed FDI rules.

Upendra K Vats, General Manager of the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), will tell members what India has to offer in agricultural products and processed foods, and explain how businesses can explore the country as a new source of products amid the global supply chain disruption caused by the pandemic.
