The Flemish government host the Global India Business Meeting 2012 in Antwerp
The Flemish government host the Global India Business Meeting 2012 in Antwerp, the city of diamond on 24-25 June 2012. Over 300 business leaders representing
multinationals, large corporations, small and medium-scale enterprises and confederations, multilateral and regional institutions from Europe and India
are gathered in Antwerp for a two-day meet to boost trade and economic links.
The summit was aimed at strengthening the Belgo-India trade and economic relations and offer opportunities for business collaboration in the two countries
Although it was hoped that the global economic situation will improve in the next few months by the time the event is held, the business summit however
took place in the midst of global economic uncertainty, ever unfolding Eurozone economic crisis and challenges faced by Indian business leaders on doing
business with Europe. The summit therefore assumed special significance as to how Indian and global business can join together to avoid economic recession
and how global business leaders address this challenges. This was the fourth such meeting being organised by Horasis focusing India, and was indeed one
of the most important trade and investment events outside India.
Europe India Chamber of Commerce (EICC) was the key collaborator of the Horasis event and coordinated relentlessly and vigorously with Flanders Investment
and Trade and other local Chambers.
