Message from the Ambassador

Ambassador  of India to Spain

Welcome to India-Opportunities, the dedicated website of the Embassy of India, Madrid for economic and commercial matters.

India is the largest free market democracy and the fastest growing large economy in the world. Spain has emerged as one of the fastest growing economies in the European Union and is expected to consolidate the economic recovery seen during 2015. The complementarities between the two economies have given rise to a wide array of new opportunities for businesses from our two great nations.

As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between India and Spain, bilateral economic and commercial relations are growing steadily. Institutional relations between our two governments, coupled with growing interest among our two vibrant business communities, have contributed to this growth in bilateral trade and investment relations.

India, as a stable, modern and youthful nation, has shown resilience to global economic downturns and continues to march forward on the path of reforms to create a more open economy with greater ease of doing business. With the largest youth population in the world, a fast growing middle class and rapid urbanization, India is poised to become a key driver of global economic growth.

It is our sincere hope and endeavour, through the India-Opportunities website, to work towards bringing the business communities from both countries closer by providing information and services that will help them better understand each other and benefit from the opportunities available.

I thank you for your interest in India-Opportunities and look forward to your support and feedback to better serve you through this exclusive portal.

Yours sincerely,
D B Venkatesh Varma
Ambassador of India to Spain
