On Thursday, 1st October East London Export Club will be taking a stand to support “Doing business in India”.

Fast forward and Bollywood (the Indian movie industry) is now a blockbuster phenomenon providing Billions USD to the Indian economy. India is the third largest economy with a large population second only to China. As the country has grown India’s middle class has also expanded, resulting in huge demands for good and services.
