Paul Johnson, a Partner in the Corporate team at Irwin Mitchell, said: “As one of the fastest growing economies in the world, India presents an exciting opportunity for professional services providers in the Yorkshire region.

“This seminar is a great opportunity for business individuals to gain an overview of Indian business, and discover and understand exactly what is involved and any hurdles that they may face when establishing a business in the country.

“A Yorkshire-based team, including experts from Irwin Mitchell and HSBC, travelled to India earlier this year in order to establish trade links, and we will be passing our experiences and advice on to those attending the seminar.

“This region can make a real impact on the Indian business environment, as it has a lot to offer and can provide an attractive proposition financially for Indian firms.”
