Indian Smart Cities – A unique Danish export opportunity
June 8, 2017 @ 10:00 - 11:45
Join us for a meeting about the Indian Smart Cities Program with attendance from the Ambassador of India in Denmark, and find out how your company can enter a large smart city market.
Business Seminar, Thursday 8 June from 10.00-12.00, BLOXHUB, Copenhagen
India is one of the global economy’s huge growth engines with an annual BNP growth of more than 7 %.
It is not only the Indian economy that keeps growing but also the population keeps increasing. In 2030, it is expected that India will overtake China’s status as the world’s most populated country.
In order to deal with the country’s fast urbanization, India’s Prime Minister Modi launched the ambitious program “100 Smart Cities”, with an investment equivalent of 100 billion DKK within the next five years. The program focuses on sustainable development for the many Indian cities that, within the next 30 years, will have a population increase of up to 400 million people.
BLUXHUB, together with Asia House, Innovation Centre Denmark, and Quercus Group, invite you to a seminar about the Indian Smart Cities Program and which opportunities there are for Danish companies.
The Ambassador of India in Denmark, Rajjev Shahare, will give a status on the Indian implementation of the “100 Smart Cities” program, and why this provides the Danish business community with a unique export opportunity. Furthermore the Danish project “Gateway to India’s Smart Cities”, which is designed to support Danish companies in entering the Indian Smart City market, will be presented
