Mr. Hemin Bharucha, Country Director, India, London and Partners, said, “India’s creative prowess coupled with its thriving startup ecosystem has garnered significant attention on the global stage, attracting many international and London-based creative tech companies. We are also seeing tremendous interest from Indian companies wanting to grow and expand into London. This Creative Trade Delegation provides a unique platform for UK and Indian companies alike to venture beyond their borders to form connections that transcend boundaries on a global scale.”

London is a global leader in creative technology and aims to create more investment and growth opportunities in this sector.  According to a City Hall report, the creative industries are contributing more than 200,000 jobs to London’s economy in the last five years. As per last year’s Sector Vision, the UK’s government aimed to grow the creative industries by £50 billion and support a million new jobs by 2030 through creative careers.  The UK Government is committed to supporting the creative industries. For instance, it intends to strengthen the Audio-Visual Expenditure Credit, a tax relief for companies producing specific types of audio-visual content within the UK, particularly in the visual effects domain.
