In Gujarat to attend the 7th Vibrant Gujarat Summit, the group travelled to QX Limited’s offices in Ahmedabad to hear about the QX growth story and UK–India trade experience.

This was followed by QX Chairman, Chris Robinson sharing his experience of setting up business in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, which began with him researching locations, finding the right premises, identifying a local partner and employing his first 15 staff way back in 2003. The delegates also appreciated the opportunity to hear Chris talk about how QX assisted a UK architectural firm to set up their operations in Ahmedabad.

Kevin McCole said, “We’re grateful to QX for inviting us to their offices. It was a very enjoyable experience as we could discuss what they are doing and how their plans have developed over the last 10 years. Like UKBIC, QX has the passion for facilitating an increase in trade and investment between the UK and India, and it was an honour to have been part of the discussions.”

Commenting on the visit Chris Robinson said, “It was a pleasure to host the UKBIC trade delegates on site. Our aim for the visit was to showcase QX Corporate Advisors (QX CA) which provides vital insight and guidance for businesses looking to establish themselves in India and the UK. The guests got an opportunity to see first-hand the important role QX CA plays within both markets.”

He continued, “We are keen to increase our activity locally, particularly across India, so this was a fantastic opportunity to build on our existing relationship with UKBIC and its members.
