India UK Merger and Acquisitions

Between 2000 and 2008 over 1000 Merger and Acquisitions took place between British and Indian Companies, these deals were worth over 75 billion Dollars. The total number of deals is expected to drop in 2009, due to the financial crisis and less easy access to credit, but the value of those that do go through is expected to remain high.

India and the UK's shared heritage make them ideal business partners and in recent years the quantities of money involved have been impressive, but mainly made up by one or two 'headline' multi-million dollar deals a year.

The next step is to promote the greater interaction between small and medium size companies in both India and the UK, as these are by far the largest employers and would have the greatest impact on the general economy.
